Averaging 15 years of experience each, the people working at Paragon provide small and mid-sized businesses, their owners and executives with a complete package of business banking solutions delivered online and in person.
Opening our doors at a time when familiar Memphis institutions have been absorbed into large, out-of-state holding companies, we confidently promote local ownership and authentic community engagement.
The success we have enjoyed since our opening validates this conclusion from a recent FDIC “Future of Banking.”
“The willingness of private investors to risk their own money to create new banks is a powerful market test of the viability of small banks”. Moreover, a concentration of new banks in areas where large and distant banks have taken over local institutions also suggests that many customers may prefer the more personal approach of community banks."
