To commemorate its newly renovated office in Coral Gables, First American Bank held a socially-distanced ribbon cutting ceremony last week.
Guests who attended the privately held, in-person event included the Coral Gables Mayor Raul Valdés-Fauli; Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce President Mark Trowbridge and First American Chairman CEO Tom Wells, among others.
The event concluded with Mayor Raul Valdés-Fauli presenting First American Bank with a gift from the city of Coral Gables as a token of appreciation.
“We opened a headquarters in Coral Gables due to the businesses here in South Florida. One of the most fascinating things I have encountered here is the entrepreneurial spirit that exists in this community,” said Wells in a press release. “It is a spirit you find in the educated foreign nationals who understand what they’re leaving and what they’re coming to, and we are here to help those individuals succeed. We are pleased to be here and to make Coral Gables the headquarters of our Florida operations.”
Located near Coral Gables City Hall and the “Miracle Mile,” First American acquired the new office space to address the increase in services and growth within the Coral Gables community.
“I believe that Miami is the financial, transportation and communications hub for South America,” said Mayor Raul Valdés-Fauli in the press release. “Coral Gables is the place to be. On behalf of our beautiful city, we welcome First American Bank with open arms and are here to support the bank in all its future endeavors.”
