We are a community bank with the unique ability to offer a full array of financial services to our clients throughout our market area.
Our goal is to create value — value for our clients; value for the communities we serve; value for our employees; and, preeminently, value for our shareholders.
The critical elements to successfully create value for our shareholders are:
- Management of credit and operating risks
- Sales and the creation of a quality experience for our clients through effective teamwork
- Control of operating expenses
We strive to be conservatively entrepreneurial, nimble, innovative, and energetic in creating solutions for our clients, while being judicious in our acceptance of risks.
We recognize that banking is a local business and that to be successful, we must maintain strong ties to the communities we serve and strong relationships with our clients.
We want to be actively engaged in important community issues and to help provide creative solutions to community needs.
We are committed to reward and recognize exceptional employee performance and be the premier employer of choice.
Above all, our business is conducted with integrity, decency, and privacy. We will strive to treat customers, employees, and even competitors with respect and appreciation. And we will demonstrate by our product offerings, policies, procedures, pricing, and service that we have not forgotten who keeps us in business.
