Unlike most banks, Merchants & Marine Bank was established in the middle of the worst economic disaster in the history of the United States. In 1932 a small group of Pascagoula citizens saw the potential of the local area, considered the risk of probable failure, and then made the bold commitment to provide dependable financial services to the people and businesses in the area.
More than eight decades later, M&M Bank’s assets have grown from $25,000 to over $600 million and from 2 offices to 12 locations in Jackson and George Counties in Mississippi and Baldwin County in Alabama. Along the way we’ve earned numerous awards, including a listing in the U.S. Banker Magazine as a Top 200 Community Bank and multiple 5-Star Superior Ratings from Bauer Financial, Inc.
Most banks can quote growth figures and at M&M we’re proud to cite those numbers. But we’re most pleased with the way we’ve helped our communities to grow. We know that our success as a bank depends on how we help our customers achieve financial success.
Through recessions, wars and changing environmental, political and social circumstances, we’ve remained true to a key tenant of our mission: “Offering professional financial services with a smile, relationships that go beyond service and leadership in the places we call home.”
As a shareholder, you can expect a solid return. As a customer, you will enjoy the latest in banking convenience and service. As a neighbor, you can depend on us for a helping hand.
