Why Ameris Bank

When you have a lot of banking options to choose from, why come to us? It all begins with our commitment to standing by our convictions and the promises we make to you — our customers and stakeholders.

We Are Lionhearted

The lion is the universal symbol of strength and courage; pride and fierce determination. It is a representation of taking bold steps and diverging from the pack. Being different requires courage. Seeing past decades of tired banking norms for a better way takes determination. When we can deliver on our promises and get things done for our customers, we give them a reason to take pride in their bank.

Ameris has always stood for strength and courage, but it wasn’t until we joined forces with Fidelity Bank in 2019 that the lion symbol became a central part of our brand. The Fidelity lion is the perfect representation of who we have always been and who we will continue to be — a bold bank that isn’t afraid to break through convention to get things done.

What does this mean for you?

Because our people are empowered at the local level to make decisions, you don't have to jump through hurdles to sign on the dotted line, get solid advice or simply receive an answer.

Whether you're in person, on the phone, or on a screen, we provide seamless — and personalized — interactions so you can choose how, when and where you interact with us.

No matter who you talk to or work with, all Ameris Bank employees share a fierce determination to help you solve problems and remove hurdles to reaching your aspirations.
