Watch for upcoming announcements about our
5 year anniversary celebrations!
Five years ago, Charter Bank began with a dream of something better. We were a collection of eager and ambitious business leaders from across our community daring to ask the question, “How should banks measure success?” After all, we remember a time when our banker was our friend. We remember a time when the relationships we built with our banker was more than a marketing slogan or catch phrases. We believed we could bring it back – and we set out to create it.
Five years ago, we rolled up our sleeves, sat at the table with people from our neighborhoods, our churches, our schools and we began to build a better bank. The blueprint was simple… to give our community what they wanted, while operating in tumultuous economic climate. We set our vision to measure our success, not by corporate standards, but by our customer’s standards… your standards.
Although the days of making loans by handshakes and IOU’s are in the past…we still offer the same friendly smile, the same sincere handshake, and the same desire to help you achieve your dreams.
Charter Bank made a promise to measure success one-to-one, and five years later we celebrate because of your trust. We opened our first office in March of 2008 in Biloxi – and you came. Followed by three additional branches; Pascagoula, Ocean Springs, and Gulfport – and you came. In response to your trust, we acquired T. Graham Mortgage, Inc. to help you find and safely finance the home of your dreams.
Five years ago, we believed that our friends, neighbors, and community should be able to trust their bank… the way we used to. Today, you have given us five years of success for which we are grateful. And we are more committed than ever to maintaining your trust.
Now, we invite you to celebrate with us, as you are the measure of our success. Watch for our five year celebration this March at the location of your choice. We look forward to continuing to work with you over the coming years.
