Empowering Our Region
for 85 years
Firstrust Bank is a $3.2B, multi-generation family-owned commercial bank with 18 branches and over 400 employees that has been serving the Philadelphia region for 85 years. Like many family businesses, we started out small – in our case, around a kitchen table in South Philly at the height of the Great Depression.
Today we’re grateful to find ourselves to be the largest family-owned commercial bank in the region. We did this by living the guiding principles handed down by our founder Samuel A. Green, each and every day - values of integrity, reliability and passion to serve our customers. Along the way, we’ve been privileged to help thousands of businesses in our region write their own success stories.

A Firstrust History
In 1934, at the height of the Great Depression, Samuel A. Green founded First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Philadelphia in South Philadelphia. It became Firstrust Bank in 1987. His cornerstone was a commitment to community and the foundation was family values. He was a leader in every sense of the word and began Firstrust’s tradition of empowering others to succeed as they strove to better themselves, their families and the communities in which they lived.
In 1970, Daniel B. Green became president and CEO of the bank and currently serves as chairman emeritus of the board of directors. Richard J. Green, the grandson of founder Samuel A. Green, became president and CEO in 1995, and today serves as board chairman and CEO.
Today, the third generation of the Green family manages Firstrust to the same high standards and personal service Samuel A. Green insisted upon many years ago.
If you are a business owner, Firstrust offers you the full range of financial solutions you’ll need to be successful, from best-in-class banking, borrowing and digital banking products to the most sophisticated financing and treasury management solutions.
