Pendleton Community Bank has been named the “Best Bank in West Virginia” in the annual West Virginia Living magazine Best of West Virginia reader’s choice awards.
West Virginia Living magazine readers nominated candidates in 86 categories from July 18 to 31, 2022, and voted for finalists from Sept. 26 to Oct. 16, 2022. Receiving more than 71,000 nominations and nearly 162,000 votes, the winners were then determined.
“PCB has served communities in West Virginia since 1925, and it is an honor to be named ‘best bank’ in my home state,” said William A. Loving, president and CEO. “We have banked generations of West Virginians since our founding, and we owe this recognition to our loyal customers who continue to support our mission. I am also extremely proud of our team members who deliver superior customer service while showing a commitment to community service. PCB has been the recipient of various awards throughout 2022, and it would not be possible without our family of bankers and customers.”
Earlier this year, PCB received recognition in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley in two reader’s choice competitions. PCB was voted “Best Bank, Best Ag Lender, and Best Home Mortgage” in Harrisonburg Radio Group’s annual Shenandoah Valley Best competition as well as “Best Company to Work For, Best Bank, and Best Mortgage Company” in the Daily News Record’s annual Best of the Valley awards.
In West Virginia, PCB was recently voted “Best Bank” in Fayette County in the Fayette Tribune’s annual reader’s choice awards.
“I am thrilled and honored for PCB to be named West Virginia Living’s ‘Best Bank,’” said Sheldon Arbaugh, senior vice president and West Virginia area executive. “It is very gratifying for our team members to be recognized for delivering our brand of banking throughout the many West Virginia communities we serve. Thanks to all who voted for PCB in this contest!”
