Experience the difference at 1st Summit Bank.

There are community banks who’ll go out of their way to pretend they’re big banks, and big banks who pretend to be community banks. With us? There’s no pretending. We are who we say we are. We do what we say we’ll do. And you can see the difference when you bank with us.

We’re friendlier and more personal. We treat our customers like the hard-working people they are, not account numbers. We go out of our way to find new opportunities and innovative solutions for our customers to make the most of their money. And we are invested in the neighborhoods we serve which is a rewarding way to operate — for us and our customers.

As a customer, you’ll feel the 1st Summit Bank difference because we begin to focus on your needs from that very first moment. Whether it’s investing in new ways to make banking more convenient for you, finding the right banking options for your business, setting you up for retirement, or holding your mortgage with us, your priorities are our priorities. Your goals are our goals. And your dreams are our dreams.

This is how we’ve served generations of customers for nearly 100 years. It’s how we’ll serve generations for 100 more. And it’s how we’ll treat you when you decide to Experience the Difference.

And we’ve been successful at it since 1924.
