The Memphis region's best-experienced business bank
Raising expectations extends to careers at Paragon. When you choose a career with Paragon, you become part of a team that takes long-term growth and shareholder value personally. Over 90% of Paragon employees are owners of Paragon stock, with employees owning approximately 15% of the bank. Paragon has a variety of plans that will continue to increase employee ownership.
Once a bank has been purchased by an out-of-state institution, support in the local community usually decreases. That is because institutions based in other communities typically provide a majority of their support in the city where they are headquartered. As a locally owned bank, Paragon strongly supports the Memphis region. In fact, being actively involved in our community is part of Paragon’s mission.
