Amerant Bank Expands Footprint in Broward County

The new banking center occupies 2,000 square feet on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.

Amerant Bank took another significant step in its strategic expansion across South Florida, expanding its footprint in Broward County with the opening of a new banking center on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. The new center, at 1200 E. Las Olas Blvd., Suite 102, offers a convenient and accessible banking experience for clients in the heart of Fort Lauderdale.

“We’re excited to expand our footprint in Fort Lauderdale and share Amerant’s dedication to providing relationship-centric banking and financial services throughout greater Fort Lauderdale,” says Jerry Plush, Chairman and CEO of Amerant Bank. “The opening of our Las Olas banking center not only demonstrates our commitment to broadening our reach in Broward County but also underscores our mission to deliver exceptional service to our valued clients where they live and work.”

The Las Olas location is Amerant’s second banking center in Fort Lauderdale, demonstrating its dedication to expanding its reach to a broader spectrum of customers across various regions of South Florida. The new location will prioritize a customer-centric approach and offer a private client ambiance. The conveniently located banking center, with ample adjacent parking, will provide tailored banking solutions for individuals and businesses, private client services, and commercial banking options, ensuring that Amerant continues to cater to the changing requirements of its diverse client base.

Later in March, Amerant plans to open its regional office in Broward County at the Cornerstone One Building at 1200 S. Pine Island Rd. in Plantation. The new office aims to host critical business lines to aid economic growth.

As Amerant expands its presence in South Florida, it has established several strategic partnerships, such as becoming the Official Bank of the Florida Panthers, the Official Bank of the Miami Heat, and the Official Hometown Bank of the University of Miami Athletics. Amerant also transferred its listing to the New York Stock Exchange in 2023 (NYSE: AMTB).

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.
