United Community Banks, Inc. is the third-largest traditional bank holding company in Georgia, with assets of $9.8 billion. Headquartered in Blairsville, United Community Banks operates 135 banking offices located throughout north Georgia, metro Atlanta, coastal Georgia, western North Carolina, east Tennessee, and western South Carolina.
Formed in 1950 as Union County Bank, we have operated on the philosophy of providing exceptional banking service while caring deeply for the communities we serve. This philosophy has fueled our growth from a $40 million bank a little more than three decades ago.
United Community Banks' success also comes from our strong, talented and experienced management team as well as the dynamic growth markets we serve. Our affiliate bank presidents have an average of 20 years community banking experience, 90% of which has been in their local markets. The markets we serve represent some of the top growth areas in the U.S. in terms of population and income.
We are proud of this success, but even more proud of the tradition upon which our company was built - treating customers the way we want to be treated. We will remain committed to helping individuals, families, schools, businesses and communities grow strong and prosperous.
