Business: With key processing systems now synced, First National Community Bank expands footprint from Rome to Chatsworth to Dalton.

Media release: With the finalization of the First Chatsworth Bankshares, Inc. merger with Heritage First Bancshares, Inc., parent company of Heritage First Bank and First National Community Bank on July 1, 2021, three legacy/existing Heritage First Bank branches were added to the First National Community Bank branch footprint in downtown Rome, West Rome and Armuchee.

Ryan Earnest now serves as president and chief executive officer of the merged First National Community Bank system with 10 branches across Northwest Georgia.

After the Heritage First Bank processing systems conversion on Nov. 8, customers will be able to bank at any one of the 10 First National Community Bank branch locations in the cities of Adairsville, Dalton (2 branch locations), Calhoun, Cartersville, Chatsworth, Eton and Rome. The Bank also has a mortgage office in Dalton and loan production offices in Paulding County and Chattanooga.

“We are extremely proud of the accomplishments and progress that has been made this year with the finalization of our merger, becoming Northwest Georgia’s largest locally owned community bank, therefore continuing our collective commitment to best-in-class service quality as well as offering leading-edge financial products. November marks a great milestone for the combined organization with the processing systems conversion that will allow customers to bank at any one of our 10 locations,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Ryan P. Earnest.

The signage of the Heritage First Bank branches will be revised to reflect the name and logo of First National Community Bank in late November/early December as the last and final phase of the merger.

“Heritage First Bank has a robust history of involvement in the Rome/Floyd County area and our downtown Rome building, especially has served among the catalysts for our success. While the signs outside will change, our dedicated team of seasoned banking professionals and our commitment to exceeds-expectations customer service and involvement
in the communities we serve remains the same,” says Earnest.
