Three bankers — all longtime CEOs and previous bank founders — join forces at one institution

The standard model when a big bank, especially a publicly-traded one, buys a smaller, community bank, is to find ways to cut excess and duplicative services and personnel.

Polk County-based CenterState Bank, a publicly traded bank with $7.1 billion in assets, does things a bit differently with its acquisitions. While eliminating some of the redundancies, CenterState — on a decade-long acquisition binge — places a premium on local management.

“It’s a decentralized business model that emphasizes local leadership and decision making from our bankers who are closest to the client,” says CenterState President and CEO John Corbett. “No one from a headquarters 100 miles away can appreciate the needs of Sarasota or Bradenton better than someone who lives and raises their family there.”

That model is on full display with the former Gateway Financial Holdings of Florida.

CenterState acquired Gateway, including Sarasota-based Gateway Bank of Southwest Florida, in a $142 million deal in March 2017. Veteran area banker Shaun Merriman, who founded Gateway in 2006, was named regional president of CenterState’s West Florida division. Joining Merriman on his senior leadership team is Brian Hall, a Gateway executive who co-founded Sarasota-based Sabal Palm Bank in 2006 and Dan Hager, who helped launch First America Bank in Bradenton in 2004. (Fort Pierce-based Harbor Community Bank bought First America in 2014; CenterState bought Harbor in 2017.
