5-Star Wheatland Bank: Where You’re a Person, Not a Number
March 1, 2019
March 2019: Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, salutes 5-Star Wheatland Bank, Spokane, Washington for its continued financial excellence. Not only has Wheatland Bank earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for 48 consecutive quarters. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning 5-Stars consistently for ten years or longer gives Wheatland Bank an even higher status as an “Exceptional Performance Bank”.
“What I find particularly encouraging”, observes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, “is that it’s community banks, like Wheatland Bank, that are achieving this status. Community banks base decisions on relationships, not just on numbers. We seem to be coming to a point where human interaction is regaining importance. Technology is an invaluable tool, but only when it enhances the customer experience. Wheatland Bank has never lost sight of that.”
Financial strength has been the priority for Wheatland Bank since its inception in 1979. Initially founded to serve the needs of Lincoln County’s agricultural and business communities, it has since expanded to 14 conveniently located branch offices. Wheatland Bank has been a source of pride for its local community for 40 years. Its original commitment is kept alive with powerful local ownership and decision making even as the bank has expanded. Wheatland Bank is a value-oriented financial services provider dedicated to serving the needs of its customers, communities and employees while enhancing shareholder value (wheatlandbank.com).
