BauerFinancial, the nation’s premier bank rating firm, has announced that First National Bank & Trust has attained its highest 5-Star superior rating. A 5-Star rating indicates that First National Bank & Trust is one of the strongest banks in the nation.
Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, commended FNB&T for maintaining a strong capital position while fulfilling its commitment to solving the financial needs of their community.
“Community banks aren’t pushing products or services on you that you don’t need or want,” Dorway said. “They are there to provide a service and fill a need, which First National Bank & Trust has been able to do seamlessly all while maintaining its pristine health.”
“FNB&T would like to thank BauerFinancial for our being recognized as one of the strongest banks in the nation,” said Glen F. Davis, president and CEO of FNB&T. “This recognition is the result of a dedicated staff who strives to put our customers first. The direction and support of our local board of directors has led FNB&T to be recognized for this achievement. Our philosophy is based on being the best … not the biggest.”
