Clearwater, Fla. – April 14, 2022 – Flagship Bank today announced another milestone in its growth with the opening of a new office in West Pasco County, on the northeast corner of Little Road and Trinity Boulevard at 9040 Tryfon Boulevard in Trinity.
The office marks the bank’s return to West Pasco, where many of its directors, officers, and shareholders live and work, and it marks another step in Flagship’s strategy to become Tampa Bay’s preeminent community bank by making long-term growth investments to better serve small to mid-sized businesses as well as individual account holders.
“Opening this new office reaffirms our commitment to serving our community,” said Paul Wikle, chairman, Flagship Bank and West Florida Bank Corp. “The West Pasco market has always been in our strategic plans, and we have assembled a team of experienced bankers with deep roots in West Pasco to lead it.”
The team will be led by Jackie Basak, retail market manager, who has been a banker in West Pasco for over 40 years, and will also include banking professionals Molly Lyons, Lynn Galioto, and Kelly Winniett.
“We are already serving many businesses and residents of West Pasco electronically and through our other locations,” said Robert McGivney, CEO and vice chairman, Flagship Bank. “We look forward to expanding those relationships and building new ones as Flagship Bank brings true community banking back to West Pasco.”
Flagship Bank also has offices in St. Petersburg, Largo, Clearwater, and Oldsmar, and it recently began construction of a new Tarpon Springs branch that will replace its current office there with a larger, more modern facility that will open in December.
