Banking locally is more than a transaction. Read about our partnership with the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce, and learn why banks and businesses are stronger together.

Two Men Walking

When banks, businesses, and communities partner together, they can accomplish exponentially more than if they stood alone. Community growth is self-sustaining. Local residents support small businesses; small businesses bring life, value and authenticity to residents. 

Winter Haven supports a diverse environment where businesses remain deeply rooted in serving the needs of the people. Our Winter Haven office allows many local small business-owners to continue the process. From SBA loans to treasury management, we provide personalized service to clients, understanding their financial position and helping them navigate the local marketplace. 

One of the partnerships we’ve cultivated since joining the area has been the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce. Most recently, we have partnered together to aid in funding renovations of the Chamber’s building, assisting their building capital campaign. “The Chamber of Commerce has been a key part in our growth,” said Bo Boyte, Winter Haven Commercial Relationship Manager. “We’re honored to be a unique part of theirs, too.” 

Carman Rich, Winter Haven Professional Relationship Manager, is an Ambassador for the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce as well. 

Both the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce and Bank of Central Florida exist to boost the livelihood of community business owners and residents. We are a relationship bank, using local knowledge to make decisions and provide support for small businesses. Banking locally is more than a transaction. It is a partnership, where communities unite toward Propelling Forward Together.
