We are proud to celebrate 80 years of business. We’ve been fortunate to have a great team that has served generations of families in north Alabama. We are grateful for the relationships we have with our customers, and the trust they place in us. They have a lot of options these days, so it is not something we take for granted” says Gates Little, President of The Southern Bank Company. For 80 years, The Southern Bank Company has provided great service and peace of mind for families and businesses. In 2017, as it celebrates this milestone, the bank has several events planned to thank its customers and the communities it serves.
