In 2017, Forte Bank celebrated its 110th anniversary as an independent, community bank. Only five percent of community banks have been in business for more than 100 years, and Forte Bank is one of them. We don't think our success and longevity is a coincidence. As a community bank, we have a mutually beneficial relationship with the community — one cannot thrive without the other. We feel incredibly fortunate to be part of a community that has supported us as much as we have supported it.
In honor of our anniversary, we asked long-time employees and customers to share their stories about Forte Bank and the impact it's had on the community. We hope you enjoy them.
