Feb. 7, 2022

Announces plans for new office located in Lakewood Ranch

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 7, 2022 – The Bank of Tampa today announced its expansion into Manatee County with plans for a new banking office. The banking office, which will be located at 10650 Boardwalk Loop in Lakewood Ranch, will be led by veteran Lakewood Ranch and Manatee County banker, Bryan Boudreaux, and is expected to open, following renovation, in fall 2022.

“Since joining The Bank of Tampa team in 2018, Bryan has made tremendous progress growing business and expanding The Bank of Tampa’s brand of banking in the Lakewood Ranch and Manatee County markets,” said Charlie Murphy, Sarasota and Manatee County market president at The Bank of Tampa. “Back when The Bank of Tampa first expanded its presence to the Sarasota market in 2018, we knew that we wanted to expand our reach to Lakewood Ranch and Manatee County. We found the right individual in Bryan first, and now we have found the right location—we are excited to continue our investment in this market.”

The full-service banking office will total more than 4,200-square-feet and will include a drive-thru and on-site parking. Boudreaux, who will continue in his role as Lakewood Ranch and Manatee County market director, offers more than 16 years of experience in banking and financial services, most of which has been focused in the Lakewood Ranch and Manatee County markets.

The Bank of Tampa has operated throughout the Tampa Bay area since its inception in 1984. Currently, the bank operates 12 offices throughout Sarasota, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. For more information on The Bank of Tampa in Lakewood Ranch, contact Boudreaux at
