Apex Bank is dedicated to provide the best banking and overall customer experience. By providing these services, we hope to enhance the quality of life, promote economic stability and growth for customers and team members, as well as enhance stockholders equity.
Apex bank, formerly known as Bank of Camden, was established in 1931. On June 1st, 2015, Bank of Camden changed its name to Apex Bank of Camden. The Bank unified its current brands, Bank of Camden, Bank of Bruceton, First State Bank and Apex Bank under the Apex Bank umbrella as part of its growth strategy.
This provides us the opportunity to expand our reach and offer the best customer experience possible.
Apex Bank’s rapid growth began in 2008, when President and CEO Matt Daniels bought fifty percent of the then $157-million Bank of Camden from billionaire Jim Clayton, founder of Clayton Homes and Knoxville-based Clayton Bank and Trust. Over the past eight years, the Bank has experienced tremendous growth, tripling the number of locations and staff, and increasing total assets from $157 million to $500 million. Today, the bank provides financial services including checking and savings, consumer and commercial lending, a wide array of mortgage products, and business banking to over 25,000 customers in twelve different locations across Tennessee.
