The Brand Banking Company (BrandBank) was chartered in 1905, after county officials told E.M. Brand that he could no longer loan money on the courthouse steps. He did not move far. He built his bank on the courthouse square. At over a century of service, we are proud to say we are the oldest locally owned bank in Gwinnett, combining old-fashioned personal service with the benefits of modern technology. With employees who live in or are native to the area, we boast a very stable staff. Our employees are encouraged to participate in community service and activities.

We appreciate your business and look forward to handling all your financial needs.

Vision:  To be the best brand in banking.

Mission:  Exceed customer expectations.

Values:  Integrity | Innovation | Teamwork
