The Power of Independence

In March of 2005, a group of local business leaders came together with a concept, blended with veteran bankers who shared the vision for a true community bank in Opp and Andalusia. From that initial meeting, Southern Independent Bank opened its doors for business in December of 2006, bringing to our markets a fresh, responsive, and service-driven institution.

We have embraced the finest traditions of community banking to provide a full array of accounts, loans, and financial services; and pledge to deliver each with impeccable service reflecting our commitment to you. The Power of Independence is reflected in the efforts of our directors, management, and staff. We look forward to exceeding your expectations of what a bank can be!
