The Importance of Community Banking

Posted on January 21, 2011. Filed under: Jill Feiler |

Community banks, as opposed to our large regional competitors, have the unique privilege of being locally owned and managed, which means that our shareholders and staff have a vested interest in the communities that we serve.  Those of us, who have chosen community banking as our careers, think of ourselves as completely aligned with our communities where we live and work.

We as community bankers understand that our customers are our greatest asset.  We rely on knowing our customers and help to manage their relationships through good as well as difficult economic times.  Our loan officers are just as effective at reading balance sheets and plugging in formulas for loan approvals as the “too big to fail” banks.  However, we bring relationship banking to the table as well, meaning we pride ourselves in becoming a partner in our customers’ business.

Denmark State Bank, a locally owned community bank, has been operating in Northeastern Wisconsin for the past 102 years.  We continue to be committed to providing up to date products and services that are delivered with the high quality customer service that is expected from a community bank.  We are dedicated to the tradition of local servicing and local decision making.  Finally, we are excited to continue our commitment and support of the local communities that we serve through monetary donations and more importantly, our many volunteer hours throughout the years.
