Our Core Values

As we grow in size, we’ve become increasingly sensitive to our social impact both inside and outside of our sphere of influence. We are very aware that the world’s social and environmental climates have transformed greatly, and our goals continue to shift as we anticipate what the future may hold. We believe that our core values are more than just words, they are the compass that guides our best decisions.

Local Market Driven

Our business structure is designed to value the unique character of the communities we serve and to encourage decision making by the banker that is closest to the action.

Long Term Horizon

We approach business decisions with an emphasis on long term growth, sustainable profits and the career development of our officers and staff. We will not sacrifice credit quality for short term gain.

World Class Service

We will exceed our clients’ expectations by anticipating their needs and responding with a sense of urgency. Each of us has the freedom, authority and responsibility to do the right thing for our clients.

Commitment to our faith and families is fundamental to the overall culture of our institution.

Our Employees

The Intrinsic Value of Every CenterState Employee

CenterState is a family made up of people from all over the world. We staff our ranks with people of all ethnicities, religions, ages, genders, and sexual orientations. Our diversity internally helps to ensure a comfortable environment for our employees as well as our customers.

Discrimination of any sort is unacceptable. CenterState will never engage in any practices that may isolate or target any individuals unfairly, and our employees undergo extensive training to uphold this directive. We welcome people of all backgrounds.

We have a zero-tolerance policy for sexual harassment. Any unwarranted touching, unwanted suggestive comments about appearance or sexuality, or any type of persistent harassment or aggressive behavior is unacceptable at CenterState. Our employees are extremely valuable to us and they deserve to feel secure within their workplaces.

Code of Ethics and Business

CenterState has pledged to uphold the highest ethical standards regarding our customers, our employees, and our business partners. Honest and ethical conduct will govern all of CenterState’s business activities. We will never engage in any predatory business practices. Our customers are our business partners, and maintaining a high level of trust is of utmost importance. As such, CenterState pledges to:

  • We will monitor for and halt known conflicts of interest.
  • We will never engage in any unfair or dishonest practices.
  • We will avoid transactions that may put our customers and partners at financial risk.
  • We will abide by all municipal, state, and federal laws.

Fraud Prevention and Security

We have taken new measures to further decrease the likelihood of fraudulent activity. We utilize a multi-layer security environment for our online account openings, guarding against fraudulent account openings.

With social distancing and more work-from-home efforts, our customers are more isolated than ever. Internet traffic is up more than 30% and we are more dependent on our computers and phones than we have ever been. Unfortunately, criminals are taking advantage of these factors and phishing emails and texts are now on the rise. To protect yourself…

  • Avoid debt relief offers from unknown and unsolicited sources.
  • Inspect email addresses and links to ensure their validity.
  • Remember that CenterState will never call, email, or text you asking for your social security number.
  • Please contact CenterState at 855-863-2265 with assistance questions.

Our Environment

In 2019, we made big strides in our attempt to minimize the negative externalities of our growth. We recycled 22 metric tons of business-related waste with the same general energy equivalency of the following:

Enough electricity to power 40 US households in a year

Removing the effects of 10 cars from our roads

The solid waste generated by 10 US households in a year

Carbon sequestered by 1968 saplings in 10 years
