Mike Nursey tapped as new Central Florida Market President for Amerant Bank

Amerant Bank has hired industry veteran Mike Nursey to lead operations in Central Florida. As Central Florida Market President, Nursey will oversee Amerant’s ongoing expansion in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties and throughout the Central Florida market.

“Mike’s extensive knowledge of market dynamics in Tampa, as well as Orlando and Jacksonville, combined with his proven expertise in building high performing teams and driving growth initiatives, makes him the ideal leader to propel Amerant Bank’s strategic goal to be the bank of choice in the greater Tampa market,” Amerant Bank Chairman and CEO Jerry Plush said.

Nursey will be based in Amerant’s new regional headquarters, in Tampa, where he will lead the company’s growth strategy for new branches throughout the region, as well as build out a commercial real estate team. He will also lead efforts to build and nurture new client relationships.

“It’s really exciting that Amerant Bank will be investing in building a commercial team, hiring private bankers and building multiple branches so that we can be a strong member of the Tampa Bay community,” Nursey said. “The bank’s plans to expand further across Central Florida will allow us to proudly be a Florida headquartered bank, helping businesses and families accomplish their financial goals.”

Nursey has more than two decades of experience leading high-performing, Florida-based teams as they build client relationships and foster substantial growth for a variety of companies. His experience includes financing acquisitions, capital investments and growth initiatives. Most recently, Nursey served as North Florida Market President and prior to that, he was managing director for the middle market of Florida for TD Bank. His experience includes leading teams responsible for client acquisition and providing growth capital for companies at $20 million to $1 billion in revenue. Prior to TD Bank, Nursey worked for 10 years as a commercial banking executive in the Jacksonville and Miami markets.

“Mike’s leadership will be instrumental as we add new locations in the greater Tampa market and additional business development personnel to our franchise. We intend to expand our services and deepen our community ties through our new regional headquarters in Tampa’s Westshore community,” Plush added.

In addition to his professional experience, Nursey is also committed to serving the local community including his service on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics Florida since 2018, the American Cancer Society-Tampa Bay Volunteer Leadership Board since 2017, and as Chair of the Athletics Commission on the University of Tampa Board of Trustees since 2015.

Amerant Bank recently celebrated the opening of its banking center and regional office, in Tampa, and has announced plans to expand in the Central Florida market with the overarching strategy of better serving Central and South Florida.

The new regional office is located in the Urban Centre Building, in the Westshore area, at 4830 W. Kennedy Blvd.

Amerant Bank is the largest community bank headquartered in Florida with a presence in South Florida, Tampa and Houston, Texas. It has been serving clients for more than 40 years, with subsidiary brands Amerant Investments and Amerant Mortgage.
