Stable from the Start

The steady start-up that began with a pair of offices in Forest Acres and Lexington has become a thriving organization with more than 250 employees and 21 banking offices across the Midlands, Upstate and Aiken areas of South Carolina and the Augusta region of Georgia. Much like the success of our clients, it only underscores our belief in a measured approach and steadfast commitments to long-term growth.

Groomed for Growth

Opportunities for advancement abound. The First Community Bank Leadership Institute offers a formal path for aspiring employees via an 18-month program of academic and experiential learning. This, along with an emphasis on day-to-day mentorship and promotion potential across multiple business lines and geographic markets, makes for a particularly high-achieving workforce.

We Believe

That everyone matters. That, when it comes to growth, a strong work ethic is as valuable as a shrewd financial eye. That honesty and integrity are the cornerstones of smart business. That excellence is a standard to be achieved, not a goal to be aspired toward. And that a spirit of service is essential to all we do.
