Climate First Bank Opens Mount Dora Branch

Climate First Bank Mount DoraClimate First Bank, the world’s first bank dedicated to fighting the climate crisis, announced the opening of a Mount Dora Branch, its second Central Florida location, at 2755 E Orange Ave, Eustis, Florida 32726.

Led by Branch Manager Kaina Norelia, the temporary location will allow customers to conveniently make deposits and withdrawals, access cash, open bank accounts and apply for loans. When the permanent branch completes construction in early 2024, the two full-time employees, Norelia and a universal banker, will move to the new, LEED Platinum building.

“My great grandfather built this building back in 1947 and just about everyone in my family worked there at some point. Now, it’s my turn, and I’m thrilled to give it a renewed purpose, bringing access to sustainable banking to my hometown,” Climate First Bank founder and CEO Ken LaRoe said. “Opening my climate-focused bank in this building is truly a full-circle moment for me, both personally and professionally.”

“The Mount Dora location makes it easier for people to drop in to do simple banking transactions, and protect the environment while doing so,” Norelia, who will manage the day-to-day operations of the branch, said. “Scaling our reach in Central Florida and making eco-friendly finance a reality for more customers ties back to our ultimate mission of doing right by the planet.”

Since opening its flagship location in St. Petersburg, Florida in June 2021, Climate First Bank has reached $272 million in assets, $216 million in loans and $218 million in deposits.
