Press Release

Heritage Southeast Bank Named Industry Top Loan Producer

Company Release - 8/27/2020 3:00 PM ET

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Heritage Southeast Bank (HSB) has been recognized as a top lender by the Independent Banker, the award-winning magazine of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA). The magazine recognized the bank in its July issue in the “ICBA Top Lenders 2020” list in the Commercial Lending $1 Billion or more category.

The annual list is based on the strength of competitive banking services and operational efficiencies using FDIC data for 2019. Scores were determined by combining the average of a bank’s percentile rank for lending concentration and for loan growth over the past year in each lending category and asset size and adjusted for loan charge-offs at certain percentile thresholds.

“We are honored to have been named to this exclusive list of community banks in the commercial lending category,” said Leonard Moreland, Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Southeast Bank. “Our employees do an amazing job every day serving customers from North Atlanta to Jacksonville, FL and adapting to market dynamics and evolving customer needs. Being recognized by ICBA in this way is a tribute to their ongoing hard work.”

“Through innovation, resourcefulness and an unwavering commitment to their customers and communities, these top lenders are creating a culture of success,” ICBA President and CEO Rebeca Romero Rainey said. “ICBA is proud to recognize Heritage Southeast Bank and its staff for their outstanding efforts and wish them continued prosperity.”
