2014 has been an amazing year for Glenwood State Bank.  This spring we were nationally recognized as a top-performing bank by In View and featured on their television show, hosted by Larry King.  Now, just a few months later, we have been featured in the Independent Banker Magazine as a Top 100 bank for loan production in the country.  At the end of 2013, we ranked 32nd in the country and now, at the end of June, we rank 6th in the country! 
 
This level of performance does not happen without a few things taking place.  First, we live in one of the best areas of the country.  Our economy is doing very well overall and we have a nice mixture of manufacturing, tourism, services, retail, and agriculture which makes for a solid economic engine.  Next, we have some outstanding employees that get “it”.  They not only understand the technicalities involved in making loans, but they also understand relationships.  We hire people that are smart and have a heart.  The last reason for our success is referrals.  Though we advertise, our growth mainly stems from customers that talk to others about their good experiences.  So, thank you very much if you are one of those that have referred others to us. 
 
God has blessed Glenwood State Bank and we will continue to work hard and try to be the best stewards we can of his assets and play our role in making our communities the best it can be.  Thanks for your continued support of our bank and, as always, please let me know what we can do to make your relationship with Glenwood State Bank even better.
