It started in 2006 when Steve Whatley, a banking veteran of 40 years, recognized and embraced the need for a community bank that truly understands and values the needs of customers today. With that, he embarked on a mission to assemble a group of organizers that shared the same vision and in turn opened Southern States Bank. With more than $31 million in capital, Southern States Bank opened offices in Anniston and Opelika in August 2007. Less than a year later, the Birmingham office opened in February 2008. In May 2012, Southern States Bank acquired an office in Sylacauga, for a total of four full-service branches to date.
