GARY L. TICE

CHAIRMAN, FIRST FLORIDA INTEGRITY BANK, NAPLES

Florida Integrity, the only community bank headquartered in Collier County, has more than $1.5 billion in assets and about 154 employees. The bank opened in 2009, founded, Tice says, “on the Golden Rule, which is why our holding company is named TGR Financial.” Tice and Garrett Richter, co-founders of Florida Integrity, also founded First National Bank of Florida and grew it into the largest publicly traded bank holding company in Florida before selling it in 2005 to Fifth Third Bancorp. Tice was a director of both the American Bankers Association and Florida Banking Association.

EDUCATION Youngstown State University (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING Even though I only play golf once or twice a year, I’ve been lucky to have scored a hole in one.
FLORIDA ISSUE The balance between the vocational schools and college, resulting in the shortage of skilled trade workers
ALTERNATE CAREER? I’d be a disc jockey playing ’50s and ’60 s music.
PHILANTHROPIC PASSION For me, the Ricky King Children’s Fund, and for the bank, it’s our annual charity golf tournament that raises over $100,000 each year for locally based organizations.
