Triad Business Bank plans debut on Monday

Triad Business Bank plans to make its official debut Monday by opening its headquarters at 1501 Highwoods Blvd. in Greensboro. It plans a grand opening for late April.

A group of former NewBridge Bancorp executives, led by chief executive Ramsey Hamadi, announced in April 2019 their attempt at launching a startup business-oriented financial institution.

Triad Business set a capital-raise goal of between $58 million and $68 million through common stock sold at $10 a share.

The bank said it reached $50 million, which exceeded the $48.5 million minimum capital-raise requirement. It plans a second offering of up to $5 million that would close by April 29.

The bank is requesting FDIC permission to open a branch at 751 W. Fourth St. in the western part of downtown Winston-Salem. The bank also plans to open a leased production office in High Point in 2020.
