“We are honored to receive both of these awards and believe it is a reflection of our employees’ hard work and dedication and even more so to our clients and communities we serve, “ said TS Banking Group Chairman, Mick Guttau. “All of our employees are the face of the company. For every employee on the frontline, there are ten more behind to support them to be sure we deliver excellent client service and help meet the needs of the community.”

As a community bank, TS Bank is an integral part of both the local community and economy. TS Bank is dedicated to community reinvestment and gives 10% of its net income back to the community. Additionally, the bank is committed to teaching financial literacy, hosting educational events and partnering with local organizations and nonprofits.

The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards highlight the vital yet often overlooked role that local community banks play in our nation’s economy. Without a vibrant local banking industry, our small businesses and families often lack the have-your-back support of a true community bank that makes communities really thrive. The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards recognize the best of what community banks offer to our cities, towns, and nation: a true commitment to the success of the small businesses and local community they serve.

Roxanne Emmerich, Chair and Founder of The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™, proclaimed during the awards ceremony: “Community banks are the backbone of America. They are what keeps a community thriving. When a community bank leaves a community, small businesses often struggle to stay, and jobs leave. Every robust community has a strong community bank that understands how to help that community thrive and grow.”
