Keller, President and Chief Executive Officer. "As further recognition of our efforts, 2015 marks the sixth consecutive year where we have earned the maximum Bank Enterprise Award granted by the US Treasury's CDFI Fund for the positive community development impacts associated with supplying credit to worthy small and medium sized businesses and non-profit organizations."
