SIOUX FALLS, S.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Bancorp Bank, N.A. (“Bank”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Bancorp, Inc. (“Company”) (NASDAQ: TBBK), announced its headquarters relocated to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, effective February 1. The announcement follows the Bank’s conversion to a national bank under the supervision of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to better serve its partners. With this strategic relocation, The Bancorp Bank, N.A. is now the third-largest bank by asset size domiciled in South Dakota. The holding company, The Bancorp, Inc., will retain its Wilmington, Delaware location, which will continue to serve as the Company’s headquarters and an Operations Center for the Bank, in addition to its other corporate locations throughout the country.
“The decision to move the Bank’s headquarters to Sioux Falls aligns with the Company’s long-term growth plan for its Fintech Solutions business and reinforces our commitment to investing in the local community,” said Greg Garry, Chief Operating Officer.
The Bancorp currently maintains an office located in South Central Sioux Falls, but construction is underway in downtown Sioux Falls where the Bank will be the anchor tenant of The Bancorp Building at Cherapa Place. When construction is complete in late 2023, the Bank will initially occupy 50,000 square feet throughout the top three office floors of the 10-story mixed-use building, which will additionally feature ground-level retail, seven stories of Class A office space, two floors of upscale condos, and conference space. The offices, designed by fellow building tenant ISG, will accommodate up to 250 employees.
“The Bancorp’s Fintech Solutions team has called Sioux Falls home since 2002. The relocation of the Bank headquarters and our move into The Bancorp Building at Cherapa Place later this year will help exhibit the growth the Company has experienced throughout that time,” said Ryan Harris, Executive Vice President, Head of Fintech Solutions. “This significant investment reflects our focus on becoming a premier employer in Greater Sioux Falls and attracting top talent that will help us continue to innovate.”
