CHARLESTON, SC – Beacon Community Bank, a privately held community bank founded in Charleston, South Carolina has opened its newest branch at 5270 International Boulevard in North Charleston, South Carolina. This is the fifth branch for the local bank in five years.

“We’ve waited a long time but got to North Charleston as quickly as we could,” said Tommy B. Baker, Chairman of the Board of Beacon Community Bank. “What a privilege it is to be in one of the biggest and fastest growing cities in South Carolina, and to fulfill our dream with Mayor Keith Summey to be in North Charleston.”

In 2018, Beacon opened its first branch in Downtown Charleston on East Bay Street. A second branch followed in Mount Pleasant on Houston Northcutt in 2019, a third on Daniel Island in 2021, and a fourth at Mount Pleasant’s Sea Island Shopping Center in 2022. The bank’s fifth branch is conveniently located at the intersection of I-526 and International Boulevard. Construction is currently underway on Beacon’s corporate headquarters and branch on Highway 17 North in Mount Pleasant, which is expected to debut in the third quarter of 2023.

“Our new International Boulevard branch is right off I-526 in the heart of the North Charleston business community,” added Baker. “It’s physically one of our largest branches to date, and the building houses both our public-facing branch and our corporate indirect (auto) lending department. We’ve already begun to welcome new clients doing business in North Charleston to our newest branch.”

With more than 300 shareholders and an 18-member board of Charleston’s most distinguished leaders and business owners, Beacon was the first community bank to form in South Carolina in nearly a decade when it was founded in 2018.
