DENNIS S. HUDSON III
EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, SEACOAST BANK, STUART
Seacoast Bank, one of the oldest in Florida, was founded in 1926. It employs about 1,000 people and has offices across Florida. Hudson’s grandfather moved the bank to Stuart in 1933. “It was the Depression years and Stuart’s prior banks had failed. Our mission back then was to help people improve their lives and build stronger communities. And that is our mission today,” Hudson says.
|EDUCATION||Florida State University (BS, MBA)|
|CIVIC EFFORT||For many years, we have supported Food for Families. This year we worked with the Salvation Army to support their programs in support of the homeless.|
|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I enjoy playing craps. I view it as a rapid game of life, with all the ups and downs that come with life, but much faster. The key is controlling risk, managing in accordance with the exposure you can afford to lose.|
