Locality Bank’s CEO Keith Costello Named Power Leader in Banking

Jun 23, 2023

Fort Lauderdale, FL (June 23, 2023)– Locality Bank’s CEO, Keith Costello, was named as one of South Florida Business Journal’s Power Leaders in Banking for his 20+ year career in banking and his recent accomplishments in launching the digital-first bank in Fort Lauderdale in January 2022. 

“Growing up, my mom would tell me ‘You can accomplish anything you want’,” said Keith Costello. “As I’ve built Locality alongside Corey LeBlanc and Drew Saito, her encouragement drives me to continue pushing the boundaries of the fintech industry.”

Born in Albany, New York, Costello is committed to empowering local business owners and providing them with the resources needed to maximize their potential and grow their company. Costello’s driving force is building strong, trusted relationships, which is a founding principle of the Locality brand. 

Under the guidance of Costello, Locality Bank remains a leader in the fintech industry, as the first community bank to open in Fort Lauderdale in the past 10 years and for setting the stage of digital-first banking in the South Florida community. In its first year of operation, Locality Bank successfully managed over $130 million in bank assets. Costello also launched the bank’s Making Bank podcast where he interviews business leaders in the community about their entrepreneurial journeys.
