New Office Open in Charleston
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina August 15, 2017 – South Atlantic Bank has opened a full-service office at 480 East Bay Street in Charleston, SC. This is the bank’s second location in the Charleston area.
“Recent bank mergers have created the opportunity for South Atlantic Bank to fill a void by offering the personalized service only a community bank can provide. The Charleston market fits our geographic footprint and commitment to serve the South Carolina coast,” said K. Wayne Wicker, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of South Atlantic Bancshares, Inc., parent company of South Atlantic Bank.
Kurt Seguer, senior vice president and commercial lender, heads the new office, and Steve Humphreys serves as senior vice president and commercial relationship manager. Peter Insabella, mortgage loan officer for the Charleston and Mt. Pleasant area, is based there as well. Rounding out the staff are Hayden DeWitt, branch manager; Ashley Cooper, retail development officer; Jill Kajouras, customer service representative; and Stephanie Barbour, teller.
Seguer has 20 years of banking experience and began in finance in Boston. He served as a commercial lender for Tidelands Bank before joining South Atlantic in October 2013. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth with a B.A. degree in writing and communication and received an M.B.A. degree from Regis University in Colorado. He also completed the South Carolina Bankers Association School of Banking held at the University of South Carolina.
Humphreys has 27 years of banking experience and most recently worked at United Community Bank as senior vice president, senior construction lender before joining South Atlantic Bank in April 2017. He is a graduate of Denison University with a degree in history and geology.
The company’s regional headquarters on Johnnie Dodds Boulevard in Mount Pleasant will open in later in August.
