Core Values

LOCAL MARKET DRIVEN

Our business structure is designed to value the unique character of the communities we serve and to encourage decision making by the banker that is closest to the action.

A LONG TERM HORIZON

We approach business decisions with an emphasis on long term growth, sustainable profits and the career development of our officers and staff. We will not sacrifice credit quality for short term gain.

WORLD CLASS SERVICE

We will exceed our clients’ expectations by anticipating their needs and responding with a sense of urgency. Each of us has the freedom, authority and responsibility to do the right thing for our clients.

RELATIONSHIP BANKING

Our bank is built on life-long friendships. We communicate with candor and transparency. We believe that the relationship is more valuable than the transaction.

FAITH AND FAMILY

Commitment to our faith and families is fundamental to the overall culture of our institution.
