Stonegate Bank issues first credit card for use in Cuba

ADVERTISEMENT

Stonegate Bank announced on June 14 the issuance of MasterCard credit cards for use in Cuba. The Pompano Beach, Florida based bank will be the first bank in the United States to take this important step and is offering a limited commemorative edition credit card.

“This has been a work in process over the last nine months,” said Dave Seleski, President and CEO. “Hopefully, more U.S. banks will allow their customers to use their cards in Cuba, thus helping to alleviate the burden on travelers to the island. In addition to personal credit cards we will also be issuing corporate, purchasing, payroll and prepaid cards within the next 30 days.”

The artwork for this card was produced by celebrated Cuban artist Michel Mirabal. Mr. Mirabal’s artwork, more than any other Cuban artist, symbolizes the historical shift in relations between the two countries. Only 1,000 of these cards will be produced. For more information on this limited edition or any of the other credit card products, you may visit our website at www.stonegatebank.com.

Stonegate Bank is a full-service commercial bank, providing a wide range of business and consumer financial products and services through its 21 banking offices in its target marketplace of South and West Florida.
