AMERIS BANK

JACKSONVILLE — Ameris Bank’s move into the Riverplace Tower later this year is part of the Georgia-based institution’s strategic plan to increase its visibility in the Jacksonville market.

Ameris TowerAmeris will begin occupying a suite on the 26th floor of the Downtown building by January 2016 and install marquee signage at the top of the office tower around the same time.

The executive team moving from the bank’s headquarters in Moultrie, Georgia., include CEO Ed Hortman and president and COO Andy Cheney, a Jacksonville native. Other key members of the senior leadership team as well as some local divisions of the bank — some 40 employees in all — will be relocated to the Riverplace Tower from Ameris’ offices on Baymeadows Way. The bank, which has about 150 workers in Jacksonville, will retain that location for support operations, including its customer care center.

In the Riverplace Tower, Ameris will open a branch on the first floor in the near future and there are also plans to expand operations to an additional floor within the building at some point.

According to Ameris Bank spokeswoman Ann-Stanton Cannarella, “Ameris Bank made the decision to increase our presence to allow for growth in personnel and to increase Ameris Bank brand exposure.”
