“Our financial results through 2023 and early 2024 demonstrate continued success,” Austin noted. “We have assembled a strong team and invested in the operations and technology to support continued profitable growth. We have an integral role in the communities we serve, know our markets well, and practice sound community banking principles.”

He also recognized that the bank’s strong position in the regional market enables the team to seize opportunities, some of which have emerged from industry consolidation.
