Clients, Not Customers

Say ‘Customers’ around these parts and you’re liable to get your knuckles rapped by a ruler. No, just kidding–but really.

As defined by the American Heritage Dictionary, a customer is one that buys goods or services or an individual with whom one must deal.

In contrast, a client is a party for which professional services are rendered, one that depends on the protection of another or a patron who seeks advice.

See the difference? We do, and that is why our Company has been able to create a style of relationship banking that is unmatched in our industry.

We take pride in the fact that we are a trusted adviser and a partner to the community we serve—to our clients.
