About NorthStar Bank  

The vision to start a new community bank in Tampa was born in early 2004 when local business leaders recognized a developing need for an independent community bank in the area. By the end of 2005, research and feasibility studies proved that their instincts were right. The organizing group expanded and evolved into a board diverse in nationality, ethnicity and faith, representing our Tampa Bay community and our commitment to the local area.

The founding business leaders assisted in a market research and feasibility study to complete the task of filing for a new bank charter, and to organize the bank’s staff and operations. These organizers selected the name NorthStar Bank as it represented the confidence in direction and reliability recognized throughout history, as well as the integrity and character so very important to this group.

On September 22, 2006 the State of Florida Office of Financial Regulation officially accepted NorthStar’s banking application. A Private Placement was concluded in January 2007, successfully raising $18 million in capital. Unique to NorthStar, all of the shareholders are located within the Tampa Bay area, with no one investor owning a controlling share of the bank. After months of preparations, NorthStar Bank opened its doors on August 6, 2007.

NorthStar Bank was founded on the principle of building solid customer relationships while providing outstanding personalized service utilizing the latest banking innovations and technology. NorthStar is focused on commercial and industrial business relationships, private client services and outstanding consumer banking.
