Our Story

Our Story

Third Coast Bank SSB was established in March of 2008 by a group of local organizers seeking to create a relationship oriented bank committed to personal service and community contribution. We distinguish ourselves with local decision making, community involvement and service responsiveness without the bureaucracy you get from the large regional or national banking chains. We call it People Based Banking.

Our approach is High Tech and High Touch.  We offer sophisticated banking tools and products, including a suite of commercial and treasury management solutions like the regional and national banks.  The best part is you are always able to talk to a local relationship banker.  You won’t get an automated system when you call our branches; a local banker answers the phone.  You really can have it all: big bank products with community bank service.

Our bank is owned by your neighbors.  Third Coast Bank is proud to be locally owned and our employees (or team members as we call us) give our customers the personal attention and service commitment of owner–entrepreneurs.   Our team members are empowered to do the right thing. Therefore, every customer benefits from a foundation of long term affiliations with local businesses and commitment to your community.

Here at Third Coast, you are more than a number.  Join us to experience the Third Coast Bank Difference.
