American National Bank is proud to be one of the few locally owned community banks in Broward County serving South Florida since 1985. Ginger Martin has been with the bank 20 of those years.

With three climbs under her belt thus far, including a noteworthy climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa in 2015, Ms. Martin has tirelessly raised funds and awareness for the women and children who are victims of human trafficking. Ms. Martin will be undertaking two more climbs in 2017 including Estes Park, Colorado and Machu Picchu, Peru.
Under her leadership, the bank has received numerous awards for its financial performance and community involvement, such as the 2016 Banky Award from The Institute for Extraordinary Banking, Business of the Year Award from South Florida Business Journal, and Small Business of the Year from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. The Commonwealth Institute named the bank one of the “Top 50 Women Led Businesses” in the state of Florida in 2017, 2016 & 2015.
