A ribbon cutting ceremony for First Reliance Bank’s newest branch was held Thursday, July 27 by the members of the Summerville Chamber of Commerce. The office is located at 133 E. 1st North St. and is open Monday through Friday.

First Reliance BankĀ  has created a number of new jobs throughout the branch, including within their operational team in Florence, after expanding into the Summerville market area.

According to Pamela Rhoads, vice president of customer experience at First Reliance Bank, the company has added approximately 25 positions to support their growth initiatives for both branch growth, their dealer finance business line and their expanded mortgage business line.

“Not all the positions are in Florence but our operational area resides here which support these initiatives,” Rhoads said.

Rick Saunders, president and CEO of First Reliance, said the bank will continue to look for additional expansion opportunities throughout the Southeast and bring their brand of banking to new markets.

“We are a Florence-based bank,” Saunders said. “As we grow and expand our footprint throughout the Southeast it creates more opportunity for additional jobs in Florence, especially in our operational and support areas of the bank.”

First Reliance Bank, founded in 1999, has assets of approximately $420 million, and employs more than 140 associates. The bank serves the Midlands, Low Country, N. Myrtle Beach, Loris and Florence markets in South Carolina.
