At CB&T, we recognize that banking is a local business and to be successful, we must have strong ties to the communities we serve and strong relationships with our customers and employees. The events of this year have only reaffirmed our values in employing our resources to build strong neighborhoods and communities, invest in our employees’ growth—and as always, help customers achieve their financial dreams.
