BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, salutes 5-Star Marquis Bank for its continued financial excellence. Not only has Marquis Bank earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for 24 consecutive quarters. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.
“What I find particularly encouraging”, observes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, “is that it’s community banks, like Marquis Bank, that are achieving this status. Community banks base decisions on relationships, not just on numbers. We seem to be coming to a point where human interaction is regaining importance. Technology is an invaluable tool, but only when it enhances the customer experience. Marquis Bank has never lost sight of that.”
Marquis Bank was established in 2007, and has been building personal relationships ever since. Today, 12 years later, Marquis Bank operates through three conveniently located offices in Aventura, Coral Gables and its newest location in Fort Lauderdale. Marquis Bank can also be found online at marquisbank.com.

Mark is responsible for developing business and commercial real estate relationships in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Huard held similar positions at Stonegate and Community Bank of Broward.
“Fort Lauderdale’s residential and commercial sectors are experiencing major development, and it’s exciting to bring our client-focused brand of banking to the market.
