Lakeland Bank, headquartered in Oak Ridge, New Jersey, was established in 1969 by a small group of local businessmen who had the entrepreneurial vision to establish a locally owned bank to meet the needs of their neighbors in the surrounding community.
Today, Lakeland continues to emulate the vision of its founding fathers by remaining a community-oriented provider of financial services for businesses and consumers while working to fulfill its commitment to simplify banking. With $5.2 billion in assets, the Bank has grown from one office to a branch network extending from the northernmost part of the state to Ocean County plus one branch serving the Hudson Valley region in New York. The Bank also has six regional commercial lending centers, and a commercial loan production office serving Middlesex and Monmouth counties.
As a community bank, being a good corporate citizen is a responsibility the Bank takes seriously. Lakeland participates in numerous community events throughout the year, and supports many charities through corporate contributions and volunteerism. The Bank believes in helping build strong, vibrant neighborhoods and continually strives to make a positive difference in the markets it serves.
Lakeland Bank’s history is steeped in the philosophy that success comes from conducting business clearly and honestly, and is proud to have been named twice to the Forbes “America’s Most Trustworthy Financial Companies” list. Our board of directors, senior management and colleagues all hold themselves and the Company to the utmost standards of integrity and esteem, which has contributed to Lakeland’s success in serving its shareholders, customers, and community.
