Banking Where You Live | Commencement Bank Tagline: Is bigger really better?

When you bank local, the money goes to our roads, our schools, and our community. Not only that, but with Commencement, you get personalized service from people who live and work where you do.

It feels good to bank local, and it does some good, too. Many of the large national and regional banks are headquartered in other states, so your money pays taxes for services you'll never use.

And that's not all we do differently. We make all our decisions right here, no algorithms or fancy boardrooms or Wall Street. In fact, you can actually talk to our CEO. No, really. His name is John and his number is 253.284.1802.
