Local bank earns national honors

Posted in:

LAUREL — Security Bank, Laurel, Allen, Coleridge, Hartington, and Osmond, was recognized as the 2018 inductee into the Institute for Extraordinary Banking Hall of Fame, presented at the 2018 Extraordinary Banking™ Awards ceremony Sept. 11, in Minneapolis.

Security Bank, which has branches in Hartington, Coleridge, Laurel, Allen, and Osmond, was recognized with the Institute’s highest and most exclusive honor, induction into the Hall of Fame, for their exemplary commitment to community banking.

As the recipient last year of the 2017 Extraordinary Bank of the Year Award, Security Bank received a brand-new car, which has been seen all over the area. 

To honor Security Bank’s commitment to community and education as the 2017 Extraordinary Bank of the Year Award winner, The Institute for Extraordinary Banking donated $10,000 to the Unstoppable Foundation to fund the construction of a new school in Africa.

Security Bank was also recognized with the Institute’s Above-and-beyond Customer Service Banky™ Award and Thought Leader Banky™ Award.

”We are honored to receive these awards and it continues to be a tribute to our customers, our staff and the five communities that we have the honor to serve,” said Keith Knudsen, Security Bank President, and CEO.

The Extraordinary Banking Awards exist to highlight the vital, yet often overlooked, role that local, community banks play in our economy. 

Consumers use the Grammys to guide their music purchases, the Emmys lead them to the best of television, and the Tonys highlight outstanding live theater.

Now, consumers have the Banky® Awards as their guide to discovering the very best, most extraordinary banks in their communities, and in the country.

This year, the Bankys recognized the top one percent, just 49 of the 4900 community banks in the United States.
