STUART, Fla. – Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida (NASDAQ: SBCF), one of the largest Florida-based community banks, continues making investments to expand its footprint across the state, with key additions to its Jacksonville leadership and commercial banking team.
Dawn Dorsey has been named Jacksonville market president, reporting directly to Brannon Fitch, Seacoast Bank’s executive vice president and regional president for North Florida. Dorsey brings 25 years of sales leadership, credit management, and banking experience. Prior to Seacoast Dorsey held several senior leadership positions at Truist, BB&T, and SunTrust Bank. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Florida.
“I am thrilled Dawn is joining Seacoast Bank as we expand in the North Florida market,” said Brannon Fitch. “Seacoast has been serving Floridians for nearly a century. Dawn and her team of talented bankers will bring Seacoast’s unique banking experience to commercial customers in Jacksonville.”
“Expansion in North Florida is a priority for Seacoast as we continue advancing our commercial banking business in dynamic growth markets,” said chairman and chief executive officer Chuck Shaffer. “Dawn is building a talented team who will bring strong customer relationships and deliver outstanding results in the coming periods,” Shaffer said.
Seacoast Bank has also welcomed Jennifer Gardell, John Brigman, Brittany Turner, and Michelle Oleszek, who will support Dorsey during the Bank’s expansion in the region. These new hires joined Seacoast earlier this February. Jim Citrano also joined Seacoast in November as senior vice president, commercial real estate covering North Florida.
Last October, the Company announced its intention to expand operations to service North Florida, beginning with the addition of Fitch to its leadership team. Now, Seacoast continues its strategic growth throughout Florida expanding into Jacksonville and Naples and growing its presence in South Florida and the Sarasota market.
