Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Reports Record Earnings

NEW ORLEANS  – Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Company President and CEO Guy T. Williams announced record earnings for 2019.

The bank said it is one of the largest home loan originators in south Louisiana and the largest lender to first-time homebuyers in the New Orleans metro area.

The bank was also very encouraged by the significant increase in the volume and deposits for the bank’s education services division.
