Lakeview Bank opened for business on July 8, 2004 as a commercial bank driven by one fundamental concept—to serve the financial needs of the residents in the communities it serves, and to improve the quality of life in those same communities.
But doesn’t every commercial bank claim those same motivations as their own? The answer, of course, is “yes”—but not every bank goes about accomplishing their goals in the same manner as Lakeview Bank.
Lakeview Bank was started by local residents who now serve as the bank’s Board of Directors. They live around here, work in the area, and as a result consistently make decisions that are in the best interests of the communities served by the bank.
To further ensure that Lakeview Bank is grounded in the communities it serves, the Board of Directors insisted that the bank should be managed and staffed by experienced banking professionals who call our service area home, as well. The difference is noticeable—the friendly people who deliver Lakeview Bank’s high quality services are the same people who live in local neighborhoods, send their children to local schools, shop in local stores, and worship in local churches. In short, they reflect the communities from which Lakeview Bank derives its business.
The chronological history of Lakeview Bank may be short, but the experience of its founders, directors, and staff and its commitment to community is extensive.
