Hometown community banking personalized for you

Brent Adams and Judy Turner

Over the past five-plus years, customers have discovered what our “Private” name exemplifies: We believe that ALL customers should benefit from the private banking approach other banks reserve for a certain few. Too, we have team members with deep roots both personally and professionally in Decatur; many are familiar to customers and are certainly familiar with the community.

We’re a full-service community bank, from safe deposit boxes, checking and savings to lending options from mortgages and construction to SBA and other business loans. And we listen. In fact, that’s why we’ve never charged ATM fees and refund those of other institutions; you told us that was important to you.

You also get the access you want and deserve. We give you your banker’s cell phone number and offer banking 24/7 via always-evolving technology, from remote deposit (via a commercial scanner or your smartphone) to smartphone apps and more. View account balances, transfer funds, pay bills, and more.

Our dedicated mortgage solutions unit, PrivatePlus Mortgage – helmed by Dan Smith, provides concierge-style service — great products, prices, processes and people! PrivatePlus Mortgage originates mortgages in 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Please know that each of the fine individuals on our team is empowered to serve you. That’s just not something you can get at all banks, and we think it’s the way banking should be.

Welcome to hometown community banking personalized for you,

Brent Adams
Executive Vice President

Our History

In October 2012 the Private Bank of Buckhead expanded, adding Private Bank of Decatur to the family. Veteran banker Judy Turner led the Decatur location launch before retiring in May 2016 after an impressive 51-year career in banking. Private Bank of Decatur is now helmed by the bank’s Brent Adams who, in addition to serving as Executive Vice President of PBofD, has overall responsibility for leading bank-wide business development and community engagement. The Decatur location is a good excuse to note that, through technology and tailored service delivery, we bring banking to you – you don’t have to be in Buckhead or Decatur. We have clients from Cobb County to Carmel, California, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and across the Metro area. (PrivatePlus Mortgage originates mortgages in 50 states and the District of Columbia.)

On January 1, 2017, the bank, including its Private Bank of Decatur and PrivatePlus Mortgage units, completed a merger with National Bank of Commerce. Our partnership with NBC enables us to do more of what we do well, delivering the brand you know, the high-touch service delivery you deserve and the bankers and mortgage pros you’ve come to trust.

After all, our approach is that of relationship banking: We understand your financial needs and then create customized business & personal banking and mortgage solutions that fit best, even as your requirements change.

  • We deliver flexible and tailored financial services.
  • We create value through our passion for our work, and by embodying the principles of integrity, unsurpassed service, good citizenship and work-life balance.
  • We earn the privilege of long-term relationships with clients and the community, anticipating and exceeding expectations.
  • We’re continually innovating to serve you better. For instance, we regularly modify our mobile banking “app” and other market-leading technology, so you can take care of most of your banking needs from your smartphone or desktop. You also have several choices for online check deposits.

Today, the bank remains focused on providing its employees with an entrepreneurial and rewarding environment, and its customers with access to highly experienced bankers and mortgage pros who are fanatical about the level of service they deliver and who have decision-making authority.
