Welcome to CresCom Bank
CresCom Bank’s origins were derived from the consolidation of Crescent Bank and Community FirstBank. Our roots run deep along the South Carolina coast.
Both Community FirstBank (Charleston) and Crescent Bank (Myrtle Beach) were founded by local business leaders committed to building successful banks in both cities under the umbrella of parent holding company Carolina Financial Corporation. The reason for both banks forming was the same: as a response to several large bank mergers that left few community banking choices for area residents and businesses.
Carolina Financial Corporation was founded in 1997 in Charleston and quickly introduced Community FirstBank. Expanding over the course of 15 years, the bank grew to six locations throughout the area, providing banking products and exceptional service to the Greater Charleston market.
In order to bring the community banking atmosphere back to Myrtle Beach, Carolina Financial Corporation partnered with business leaders in the Myrtle Beach area to form another community bank – Crescent Bank. Through the years, Crescent Bank grew to four full-service locations to meet the banking needs of Grand Strand residents and businesses.
After 11 years of operating the banks as two independent banks, the Board of Directors and management recognized consolidating the two banks into one would create more opportunities and better service to our customers.
As a result, on March 26, 2012, our sister banks consolidated to become one bank – CresCom Bank. The name and the logo pay tribute to our former brands by using elements from both Crescent and Community FirstBank, along with the Crescent Moon, which is such an iconic brand element of our state.
Consolidated, now CresCom Bank has 14 locations along the coast of South Carolina. Offering a strong core of banking products and services and a committed group of community leaders, management and personnel, CresCom Bank remains committed to warm, exceptional service and a strong knowledge of local businesses and economic trends.
It’s this dedication that makes "Have a nice bank." more than just a slogan, but a commitment to service. This, combined with our years of experience and unique understanding of financial opportunities along coastal South Carolina, makes CresCom Bank the perfect fit for your personal or business financial needs.
