Commerce National Bank & Trust celebrated its 15th anniversary this past February, but the Bank’s roots go back to 1986 when the National Bank of Commerce (NBC) began serving the residents of Central Florida. In 2000, NBC was acquired by Wachovia, and following the merge of Wachovia and First Union, the NBC branches were slated to be closed. In 2002, a group of investors led by Ray Colado (CNB&T’s current President) submitted an application for a national bank charter. Commerce National Bank of Florida opened its doors for business in 2003 in the original NBC building. In 2006, trust powers were granted and the Bank was renamed Commerce National Bank & Trust.
