Seacoast Bank, the banking subsidiary of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida (NASDAQ: SBCF) and one of the largest community banks in Florida, is pleased to announce the appointment of Eddy Arriola to its Board of Directors. This strategic addition, which became effective June 4, 2024, underscores Seacoast's unwavering commitment to strengthening its presence and leadership in the Miami market.


Arriola brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record in banking and business development. He previously served as Senior Vice President and Market Executive of Seacoast Bank, where he was instrumental in formulating and executing growth strategies to deepen client relationships and enhance market presence. Before joining Seacoast, Arriola was Chairman and CEO of Apollo Bank from 2009 until its acquisition by Seacoast Bank in 2022.

"Eddy's extensive experience in the banking sector and his deep roots in Miami make him an invaluable asset to our Board of Directors," said Chuck Shaffer, Chairman and CEO of Seacoast Bank. "The leadership and vision he showed as part of our team proved he will be crucial as we continue expanding our influence and commitment to the South Florida market."

Prior to his tenure at Apollo Bank, Arriola was actively involved in various entrepreneurial ventures in the technology and business service industries. He has served on the boards of several prominent banking organizations, including BankServ, Total Bank, Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta, and Florida Bankers Association. Additionally, he was Chairman of the Board of the Inter-American Foundation, a U.S. government agency supporting grassroots development in Latin America and the Caribbean, appointed by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Arriola’s dedication to community service is evidenced by his involvement with numerous community boards, including City Year Miami, United Way of Miami, and Kristi House. His extensive skills and knowledge will be instrumental in guiding Seacoast's growth in the Miami market and supporting the institution’s goal of becoming the dominant bank in Florida.
