Local community leaders, bankers join in celebrating bigger, better banking offices after pandemic delay
SANTA ROSA BEACH, Fla. (May 21, 2021)—After the onset of the global pandemic delayed festivities originally planned for spring 2020, the Walton Area Chamber of Commerce, local community leaders, and Hancock Whitney bankers celebrated the official grand opening of the bank’s new Santa Rosa Beach financial center at 111 North County Highway 393, Building 1, Suite 1, on May 20, 2021.
On-site festivities included all-day client appreciation activities and a 2:00 p.m. ribbon cutting.
“We are thrilled to have the chance finally to celebrate our new financial center with our clients and community,” said Hancock Whitney Northwest Florida Market President Bruce Vredenburg. “Our Santa Rosa Beach financial center is a beautiful facility in a great location which provides our associates the space and resources to serve our clients’ financial needs.”
Hancock Whitney previously operated its Santa Rosa location from a smaller facility across the street from the new financial center. With more than 3,600 square feet of business space, the new location is larger, more easily accessible, and houses a full team of financial professionals providing a broad spectrum of financial services to help local consumer, small business, commercial, and wealth banking clients across the Walton County region succeed.
Huff Properties, which owns the building, constructed the location to accommodate the new Hancock Whitney financial center.

Hancock Whitney offices and financial centers in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and Texas offer comprehensive financial products and services, including traditional and online banking; commercial and small business banking; private banking; trust and investment services; healthcare banking; certain insurance services; and mortgage services. The company also operates a loan production office in Nashville, Tennessee.
