We believe all clients should benefit from the heightened level of service other banks reserve for a certain few.

Private Bank of Buckhead is celebrating its Eighth Anniversary. The bank opened December 11, 2006.

“We continue our steady, planned growth and our focus on First Class Service on a First Name Basis,” says the bank’s President, CEO and Chairman Charlie Crawford. “Our clients – and the market – have responded to the fact that we provide them with access to bankers with decision-making authority who are fanatical about the level of service we deliver.”

Crawford, who organized the bank with 11 other directors, also notes that the bank’s Private Bank of Decatur division marked its Second Anniversary in October and that PrivatePlus Mortgage, the bank’s re-launched and much-expanded mortgage division, will soon celebrate its First Anniversary.

“We are thankful that clients have embraced our strategy and high-touch approach,” says the bank’s Chief Operating Officer and CFO Terry Freeman. “Their confidence and referrals have brought us to our Ninth Year in a position of strength.”

He also notes that in 2008 Private Bank of Buckhead added a Small Business Administration lending department that within a year earned SBA Preferred Lender Status, which has continued to be renewed.

“We believe all clients should benefit from the heightened level of service other banks reserve for a certain few,” Crawford says. “If anyone out there doesn’t love their bank, I hope they’ll consider our approach to full-service community banking.”

Private Bank of Buckhead is located in Piedmont Center (Building Three) in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, the city's financial district. Private Bank of Decatur is located at 150 East Ponce de Leon Avenue in Decatur, at the corner of Ponce and Church Street. PrivatePlus Mortgage is represented in Decatur, and does business nationally.
