CEO Spotloght – Steven Lohbeck, Ameris Bank

Steven Lohbeck joined Ameris Bank in 2013 and has more than 17 years of commercial banking experience. He currently serves as market president of the Panhandle market where he is responsible for building and strengthening the bank’s initiatives and programs throughout the area. Prior to his current role, Steven served as a senior vice president in commercial lending, commercial banking manager for the Panhandle, and most recently as market president for the Tallahassee market. He graduated from The Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University, Florida School of Banking at the University of Florida and from Florida State University.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed helping establish Ameris Bank in Tallahassee and throughout the Panhandle through our commercial partnerships. Our bank’s significant growth year over year throughout this market reinforces the positive business and economic contributions we are making,” said Lohbeck. “Ultimately, at Ameris Bank, our main objective is to impact our communities in the best way possible.”

In 2019, Ameris Bank merged with Fidelity Bank, and now has a larger presence throughout the Southeast. Ameris Bank also rebranded last year, and its new logo leverages the strongest elements from both the Ameris and Fidelity brands. The new brand, which will be fully deployed across the Southeast in the coming months, represents Ameris Bank’s new size and scope in the financial industry and reflects its history – a bank that is bold and fiercely determined to find a better way to get things done for its customers and communities.

Ameris Bank is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and manages over $17 billion in assets and 172 full-service banking locations in Georgia, Alabama, Florida and South Carolina at the end of the most recent quarter. Ameris Bank is fiercely committed to bringing financial peace of mind to the communities it serves offering a full range of financial services, including traditional banking and lending products, treasury and cash management, wealth management, insurance premium financing, and mortgage and refinancing solutions.
