Community Icon, First Service Bank, Named Among the Top Extraordinary Banks in the USA

Minneapolis MN, September 17, 2019 – First Service Bank, a local Arkansas icon, was just named among the top extraordinary banks in the United States by The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™

First Service Bank was recognized with the Institute’s Banky™ Award for its commitment to strong community banking. This recognition is given to top community banks across the country to help people find the best banks in their communities.

“It is an honor to be recognized with the Banky Award,” said Tom Grumbles, President, CEO and Chief Lender of First Service Bank. “I believe this award is a testament to our employees’ hard work and dedication and, most significantly, the customers and communities we serve.”

The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards highlight the vital, yet often overlooked, role that local community banks play in our 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.”
