Why Bank with a Community Bank?
When asked about the benefits for a business to bank with a community bank like North American Banking Company, commercial lender Brad Benesh didn’t hesitate to bring up relationships.
“When you do business with a community bank, you get to know us, and we get to know you,” says Brad Benesh, Senior Vice President, Business Banking. “As a result, we can quickly answer two questions: What do you need and how we can help.”
Brad should know. He has many long-term customers at North American Banking Company, some that have worked with him for more than 20 years.
“Working with Brad is like working with a neighbor,” said Ken Godbout, Owner of Northland Fastening Systems who has been banking with Brad for more than 30 years. “But at the same time, working with someone that absolutely knows what they’re doing. You can trust them. More than anything, it’s a comfort knowing that we can go to him and say ‘Here’s what we want to do but we need your help.’ “
Another benefit of banking with a community bank like North American Banking Company is that loan decisions are made locally, by people who live and work here, understand the market, and are invested in the success of our customers.
Brad Huckle, our president and chief lending officer, says it best: “We’re invested in our community, we’re embedded in our community, and we really want to help local businesses succeed.”
The main advantage of this local decision making is that financing can be made available quickly. When a business is looking to grow or expand, community banks like North American Banking Company can take decisive action.
