Maintaining Our 5-Star Rating

Maintaining Our 5-Star Rating

Wednesday, December 12, 2018/Categories: Bank News

Community First Bank has again earned the top 5-Star rating from Bauer Financial, Inc., the nation’s leading independent community bank rating firm and for the first time, the Banky Award from the Institute of Extraordinary Banking.

The 5-Star rating recognizes CFB’s continued superior strength and financial performance.  The award is based upon a thorough analysis of the most recent quarterly financial data as supplied by the FDIC and is supplemented with other historical data.

The Banky Award from the Institute of Extraordinary Banking recognizes the top community banks in the country based on its commitment to strong community banking including customer and employee satisfaction, philanthropy, financial performance, and bank culture.  The Banky Award also places emphasis on the vision and mission of a bank and how it works to better the markets it serves.

We are very proud to consistently earn this 5-Star rating as well as receiving the Banky Award this year.  These awards of excellence show the pride our entire team takes in helping our customers and communities grow, prosper and achieve their goals,” said Dan Klahn, CEO and President of CFB.

Community First Bank is unique from most banks as we are primarily owned by our employees, officers, and directors, all of whom reside in the communities we serve.   We are truly committed to the success and best interest of our markets and this is reflected in being honored with these awards.”
