Amerant Bank Appoints Jesse Flowers as Palm Beach Market President

The company plans to open its third Palm Beach banking center and regional office set to open in 2025.

As Amerant Bank continues expanding its presence in South Florida, the community bank has appointed Jesse Flowers as Executive Vice President and Palm Beach Market President. Flowers, a key figure in the financial services sector in the Palm Beach market, possesses over 20 years of banking experience and specializes in catering to clients who value genuine and sincere relationships with their bank.

“We are excited to welcome Jesse as Amerant’s new market president for Palm Beach County,” says Jerry Plush, Chairman and CEO of Amerant Bank. “His focus on relationship banking and his commitment to client success align perfectly with our precepts. We are confident that under his leadership, our Palm Beach market will thrive, and our clients will receive the exceptional service they deserve and expect from Amerant Bank.”

Flowers will head a team dedicated to offering personalized financial services for individuals and businesses in his new position. This includes private client services, commercial banking, international banking, and a range of other tailored banking solutions aimed at meeting the changing needs of the bank’s clients. His distinctive approach to personalized banking and extensive understanding of the Palm Beach market will play a crucial role in driving growth while improving the quality of service and offerings for Amerant Bank’s clients in the area.

“I am thrilled to join the growing Amerant team and lead the bank’s expansion in Palm Beach,” Jesse Flowers says. “I look forward to building strong relationships with our clients and delivering exceptional financial solutions that support the bank’s increasing success.”

Before Amerant, Flowers held the position of Regional President for West Palm Beach at SouthState Bank and several senior roles at top financial institutions, focusing on nurturing client relationships.

Amerant has recently been approved to establish its third banking center and inaugural regional office in the Palm Beach market at 525 Okeechobee Blvd. in CityPlace. The anticipated opening of the office and banking center is scheduled for Q1 of 2025.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
