06 Jan Chairman of Seagate to Join Board of Gulf Coast Business Bank
Seagate Development Group’s Chairman of the Board and Partner, Bill Price, has accepted an invitation to join the Board of the upcoming Gulf Coast Business Bank. This comes just after federal and state approval of this financial institution, which is expected to open in April 2022 at the corner of Metro Parkway and Crystal Drive in Fort Myers.
“We are excited to have Bill Price join the board of directors as his 40-plus years of knowledge in real estate development will be a benefit to our team and shareholders of Gulf Coast Business Bank,” said the bank’s President and CEO, William M. Blevins.
As one of the only locally owned banks in Lee and Collier counties and the first area bank to open in 12 years, Gulf Coast Business Bank will focus on the needs of Southwest Florida’s businesses and residents. Bill’s experience in commercial and residential development, as well as his principled business practices, will provide tailored guidance to a bank looking to make its mark in the industry.
“As a local business owner, I am honored to accept this humbling position on the board. I cannot thank William Blevins and his team enough for this opportunity and know that, together, we’ll do great things for the people and businesses of Southwest
Florida,” said Price.
