C1 Bank Enters Into Definitive Agreement To Acquire U.S. Century Bank
Trevor Burgess, the Chief Executive Officer of C1 Bank, and Ramon E. Rasco, the Chairman of U.S. Century Bank, announced today that C1 Bank and CBM Florida Holding Company, have entered into a definitive agreement with U.S. Century Bank for the acquisition of Doral, FL based U.S. Century Bank. The acquisition will be accomplished through the merger of U.S. Century Bank into C1 Bank.
Recognized as a community bank, U.S. Century Bank has an excellent reputation in the South Florida market with $1.2 billion in assets and 24 banking centers in the Greater Miami area. This transaction will introduce C1 Bank to Miami Dade and Broward counties. The merger grows C1 Bank to approximately $2.2 billion in assets.
CBM Florida Holding Company was established in 2008 to acquire, capitalize and rehabilitate Florida banking institutions. Its first investment was completed in December 2009 when it acquired a controlling interest in Community Bank of Manatee followed by the May 2011 acquisition of First Community Bank of America and by the May 2012 acquisition of The Palm Bank.
C1 Bank, which is relocating its headquarters to St. Petersburg, FL in September, currently has approximately $925 million in assets. It has achieved nine consecutive quarters of profitability and has reported net income year-to-date as of June 30th of over $3 million. C1 Bank was recently named by Inc. magazine as one of the 5000 fastest growing companies in the United States.
"This acquisition creates an institution with 45 banking centers spanning the entire Tampa Bay region and the entire Miami Dade region. It expands our presence to seven counties in south Florida and brings our number of clients to nearly 50,000," said Marcelo Lima, Chairman of CBM
Dr. Quintal & Associates welcomes Dr. Krista Cournoyer, a licensed psychologist and certified school psychologist, to its practice.
Dr. Cournoyer, who earned her Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Rhode Island, provides assessment, counseling and treatment for a broad range of behavioral, emotional and learning disorders in children, adolescents and adults. She specializes in the assessment of learning disabilities, attention and concentration challenges (AD/HD, self regulation, executive functioning), mood and anxiety difficulties, and autism spectrum disorders. Dr. Cournoyer has extensive experience with the identification of, advocacy for and counseling with gifted and high ability children and adults, as well as counseling with children and adults trying to effectively cope with stress, trauma and low self esteem.
"I'm committed to helping children, adolescents and their families address a range of social, emotional, and learning issues so that they have the opportunity to reach their full potential. This must begin with effective identification of these needs with counseling goals focused on maximizing strengths," says Dr. Cournoyer. "My approach involves caregivers and teachers as significant participants in a positive, strengths-based, collaborative therapeutic relationship. I want to connect youth to their inner strengths so they can lead satisfying, productive lives."
According to Dr. Jason Quintal, Dr. Cournoyer makes an ideal addition to his practice. “We feel privileged that someone with Krista's credentials has joined our team of therapists,” he says. “Along with her deep knowledge and experience, Krista offers an energetic spirit and a creative approach to problem-solving. She brings a truly inspiring combination of enthusiasm, ability and commitment. We know our clients will benefit greatly."
