The Mission Endures
From the Archives
On December 4, 1990, our founding directors, Duane Stranahan, Jr., H. David White, Sr., and Maynard Sauder incorporated a national trust bank and made a vow to the community. They promised to reinstate the tenets under which old-line financial institutions once conducted business: recognize the importance of relationships, understand each family gestalt and provide an unwavering commitment to clients. This promise is the foundation upon which we were built and guides us to this very day.
Today, we build trust and investment relationships that endure for generations. The company remains independent and privately held. Founding families continue as owners and clients. Every client shares in an atmosphere of integrity, honesty and trust that can be difficult to find in this modern era of wealth management.
We believe that so long as our mission endures, the legacies and wealth of our clients will grow along with it. That’s why our clients remain devoted, and why so many have been with us from the beginning. It’s not old-fashioned thinking. Just old-school values.
