On an icy, blustery winter night in our first year, our CEO and a colleague were headed to a meeting with a hopeful entrepreneur in search of a property loan. On the way, they spotted an elderly couple whose car had swerved off the road and was stuck in the snow. Even though they were in their suits and dress shoes, they stopped to help. Their appointment was important, but this was more important. Together, they pushed the car out of the snowbank, returning the couple to the safety and comfort of their home. Then they proceeded to the meeting to provide support and service to a new customer, who remains a successful entrepreneur to this day. Helping the couple get safely home and the customer achieve his dreams set the foundation for our company. By caring for everyone we encounter like family, we’re able to truly serve our communities with kindness and forge lifelong relationships with people like you.
