ServisFirst Bank Atlanta Opens New Corporate Banking Center at Cobb Galleria

Atlanta, GA (July 14, 2015) ServisFirst Bank Atlanta, a subsidiary of ServisFirst Bancshares (NASDAQ:SFBS), announces the addition of its new Cobb Galleria banking location, which opened for business on July 1. ServisFirst Bank Atlanta occupies approximately 9,500 square feet in this location which includes both a full service bank branch and corporate and customer service office space. Currently fifteen employees work at the new location working in all aspects of banking including retail branch services, mortgage services, business and personal banking services.

ServisFirst Bank expanded to Atlanta in January, when it closed its merger with Metro Bancshares Inc. The acquisition served as a strategic entry point into the Atlanta market. ServisFirst Bank now has three locations in the Atlanta market including the Galleria, Douglasville and Kennesaw.

Brightlane Partners LLC served as an advisor to ServisFirst on the merger & acquisition of Metro Bancshares, Inc. and assisted in the process of opening the new corporate banking center. “This new location is in a rapidly growing area of metro Atlanta, and ServisFirst has an impressive group of professional bankers with built-in networks to the area. This will certainly help them grow to new heights in the market,” says T. Stephen Johnson, Sr. Managing Director of Brightlane Partners, LLC.

The new banking center is located at 300 Galleria Parkway SE, Suites 100 and 350, Atlanta, GA 30339. This perimeter location is convenient to major highways I-285 and I-75, providing easy access to most of metro Atlanta. The area is one of the fastest growing submarkets in the metro area, as the new Atlanta Braves stadium is constructed outside the office windows.
