Synergy Bank Celebrates 20 Years of Local Banking

In its 20-year history, Synergy Bank has been recognized by their many patrons in the Bayou Region as the local, customer-first bank you can trust.

“We are excited and thankful to be celebrating our 20th year in the Bayou Region,” said Synergy Bank President and CEO Jerry Ledet. “The overwhelming support that we have received over the years from our customers, our employees and our community is truly humbling. We are grateful to be a part of the Bayou Region and look forward to continuing to help our area prosper.”

Whether it’s a personal or business account, applying for a loan or taking the hard-earned money you made and investing it, Synergy has dedicated professionals that can assist you with your banking needs.

“When our directors formed Synergy Bank, our mission was to cultivate a bank that was dedicated to helping our community thrive,” Ledet said. “Our success is a direct reflection of living that mission every day.”

With six locations (three in Houma, one in Gray, and two in Thibodaux), their customers in the Bayou Region have no problem finding a nearby branch to “bank on the bayou” with Synergy.

Synergy offers the most recent technological banking services. Customers can access their account information online at their website— — or through their mobile app.

“Though we offer the latest in banking technology, what differentiates us from other banks is the devotion of our employees to providing exceptional customer service,” Ledet said. “I personally attribute our success to the dedication of all our employees over the last two decades. The driving force of Synergy is our employees’ commitment to our customers and to providing excellence in service inside and outside the bank.”

Members of Synergy, along with being there for customers, are also there for the community. Many of the bank’s employees volunteer their time to help others.

“Our employees go the extra mile in helping our customers to achieve their financial goals; however, their customer service extends beyond the bank in the countless volunteer hours to both civic and nonprofit organizations in the Bayou Region,” Ledet commended.

The bank sponsors several charitable events throughout the year, such as the annual Pack the Bus School Supply Drive. Through a partnership with United Way of South Louisiana, Pack the Bus is a school supply drive that lasts the entire month of July. People from the community drop off donations to various businesses in the Bayou Region participating in the drive, and then the supplies are all gathered and distributed to schools in Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes.

The bank is happy to support the Bayou Region, as it is the same community that has supported them these last 20 years.

“We are strengthened and blessed by the overwhelming support that we have received from our community. We are dedicated to the Bayou Region and will continue to cultivate opportunities that expand and diversify the economic well-being of our home,” Ledet said. “As our tagline for the past 20 years states, we remain ‘Your bank. Our community. Stronger Together.’” •
