A Summersville-based bank has earned a five-star superior rating from BauerFinancial, a Coral Cables, Fla., bank rating firm.
The latest rating is based on Dec. 31, 2013 financial data, and the firm said it signifies that Community Bank N.A. is one of the strongest banks in the nation. Having earned and maintained a five-star rating for 48 consecutive quarters, the bank has earned an even more elite designation as an “Exceptional Performance Bank,” an honor for those who have earned five stars for 10 consecutive years or longer.
“While the national economy saw modest growth in 2013,” said Karen L. Dorway, president of the rating firm, “through its strength and commitment, Community Bank N.A. has been able to shine. The people who work at Community Bank N.A. know that its well-being and that of the community are inextricably tied to one another. By supporting and promoting their customers, employees of Community Bank N.A. are making a positive difference right where they live.”
Community Bank, formed in 1094, has branch offices at Eminence, Houston and Summersville. Its website is www.communitybank-na.com.
