Global media giant, Forbes, has ranked Summit Community Bank as the number-one “Best-in-State Bank” in West Virginia for 2022.
As published June 21 on Forbes.com in an article and report released by Forbes and market research firm, Statista, more than 26,000 customers were surveyed across the United States for opinions on their current and former banking relationships. To highlight the importance and advantages of local banks, the survey excluded nationwide U.S. banks and credit unions with branches in at least 15 states.
According to the article, local banks and credit unions were rated on “overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions” including trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice. With an overall rating of 85.66, Summit secured top spot, scoring higher than the average of all surveyed banks and credit unions alike.
Summit Community Bank was first awarded the honor of Forbes and Statista’s “Best-in-State Bank” in 2018 and has consistently ranked in the top five best in-state banks for West Virginia.
“We’re extremely proud and so thankful to be named the best in-state bank in West Virginia again,” explained Charlie Maddy, Summit Financial Group CEO. “Over the last four years, Summit’s steadfast commitment to providing our signature ‘Service Beyond Expectations’ and an exceptional banking experience to communities has kept us as one of West Virginia’s top five banks, and it is humbling to be recognized by our clients again as number one.”
