For over 75 years, Metairie Bank & Trust has been committed to serving the hard-working families and businesses of Jefferson Parish and beyond. Founded by local business leaders in 1947 to help Metairie prosper as a self-sufficient community, today Metairie Bank is the oldest and largest commercial bank headquartered in Jefferson Parish, with assets exceeding $580 million.

From a single branch on Airline Highway, this beloved community bank has grown to nine locations, including two on the Northshore. Since the beginning, the Metairie Bank team has built relationships to help its customers achieve their long-term personal and financial goals, which is why they are known as The Bank of Personal Service.

“Our commitment not only includes financial services and products, but supporting civic, philanthropic, and cultural organizations that add to the quality of life,” says Metairie Bank CEO John LeBlanc.

Through both financial contributions and volunteerism, Metairie Bank supports many organizations such as Junior Achievement, Youth Service Bureau, Jefferson Beautification Inc., The Better Business Bureau, The American Cancer Society, Children’s Hospital, Crime Stoppers, and Jefferson Dollars for Scholars, to name just a few. The bank is also an active member of the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s not just about lending money — it’s about lending a hand to the organizations that make our lives and our communities a better place in which to live, work, and play,” says Metairie Bank President Mike Gennaro.

Metairie Bank’s commitment to customers and the community has not gone unnoticed. The bank has been named “Best Bank” by readers of New Orleans CityBusiness and “Best Local Bank” by Gambit Weekly. Metairie Bank has also been voted one of the “Best Places to Work” by readers of CityBusiness several times over.

“Put simply, we make our customer’s dreams come true,” says LeBlanc. “It’s about them, not us. It’s not about talking; it’s about listening. And that’s the community bank difference.”
