“I am humbled to receive the Ultimate CEO recognition from the South Florida Business Journal,” said Macedo. “Ocean Bank’s success would not be possible without the efforts of the entire team, and I am honored and privileged to spearhead the initiatives that set us apart from other banks as we open new branches and expand across Florida.”
