Ameris Bank to create new center in Buckhead that could employ hundreds

Ameris Bancorp will create a financial center in Buckhead, as it bolsters both its brand and recruiting in Atlanta. Jacksonville based Ameris (Nasdaq: ABCB) a well-known regional bank across south Georgia and northern Florida, made a bold entrance into the competitive Atlanta market this year when it paid $870 million to buy Fidelity Southern Corp. That deal closed in July. Ameris Bancorp intends to strengthen its image and ramp-up recruiting in Atlanta.
