First Business


Bank changes giving you a negative impression? Make a positive change.

If your business bank changes your account numbers, the people serviing you, and eliminates local decision making, it's no longer the bank you chose. We'd like to earn your business. We offer the services and resources of a large bank, but with local decision making, a local board of directors, and a 97% client satisfaction rating.

The First Business Difference

Our mission is to provide premium service and the highest quality products that meet our clients' financial needs. Our clients tell us the First Business difference is personalized attention, fast turnaround on decisions, knowledgeable people, and access to top decision makers.

Personalized Attention
First Business doesn't plug your business into a formula. We take the time to learn what you do and how you do it. We use our understanding of your unique needs to craft a unique solution.

Fast Turnaround on Decisions
Business opportunities can develop suddenly. But the window of opportunity can close quickly, so you need a responsive financial partner to take advantage of these opportunities. At First Business, we make our decisions locally and quickly - so you get the answers you need when you need them.

Knowledgeable People
The best financial consultants understand more than their own business. They understand yours, too. First Business has consulted with hundreds of successful businesses and individuals. So we know how to help our clients succeed. Our people have strong business backgrounds and a deep appreciation for the entrepreneurial spirit. In addition, the members of our board of directors are always willing to share their experience and perspective with you.

Access to Top Decision Makers
Every financial services company says it values your business. But First Business demonstrates the importance of your relationship by giving you access to all of its resources and all of its people - including our presidents and CEOs. Our top people get to know you and your business in a way our competitors can't or won't. So even if your primary contact is out of the office, there's someone available who knows your business and can get things done.
