Community focused.

Our focus has always been in providing innovative financial solutions in a community banking environment, where exceptional customer service is our top priority.
 
The Bank has carved out a regional market niche by catering to businesses large and small who wish to take advantage of a local bank that offers all of the business services that are expected from a larger organization. Since its inception, the company has a long and proud history of offering free checking to its customers. 
 

Caring for our customers' most basic financial needs serves as a daily reminder that we are privileged to have our customers' trust and that we must always put the needs of our customers first. It is the specific goal of the Company to offer the services customers and clients expect from larger financial services firms in a community bank environment. That philosophy is embodied in the corporate theme "The Bank That Puts You First."
