Branson is unique; it’s filled with the most talented and caring citizens you’ll ever find. As Branson Bank and the surrounding community continues to grow, the local community bank, headquartered in Branson, Missouri, is dedicated to helping ensure that local values, “Faith, Family, Flag, & Freedom,” continue to grow along with it.
As a locally owned, community bank, associates and management believe in providing the most innovative banking products and services… while treating customers like family.
From young adults opening their first checking account, to a local business able to open or expand with the help of a business loan, Branson Bank offers a flexibility that only a true, community bank can provide. Technology-focused, to offer an innovative banking experience, Branson Bank goes deeper than the numbers; they know their community and how best to serve it.
Every day, Branson Bank focuses on being an economic engine for area businesses and the people who call Branson home. This engine begins with the relationship between customer and banker. Deposit dollars are reinvested into the community in the form of loans helping businesses grow and families thrive, in comparison to the corporate banks that funnel out dollars to support growth in communities elsewhere across the country.
Their commitment to community also rings true with how associates live out their daily lives. You will see them coaching their child’s Little League games, coordinating a back-to-school shoe drive for the local Boys & Girls Club, or facilitating a million dollar grant that will help fund affordable housing. Their service goes well beyond the bank counter, and that is what truly sets them apart from their peers.
Branson wouldn’t be Branson without its Veteran community. There are countless stories of heroism humbly waiting to be told across the community and Branson Bank aims to help tell them. In 2009, the Branson Bank Veteran of the Quarter program was created. The quarterly program encourages individuals to submit a nomination on behalf of a local, Veteran living within the community, to honor hometown heroes by helping share legacies.
Since 2009, 44 Veterans have been publicly recognized and celebrated; individuals who have served in every branch of the military and genre, dating back to WWII. Clinton Caperton, a 35-year-old Army Veteran who served in Iraq, was the bank’s 5th Veteran of the Quarter. “It’s really incredible what Branson Bank is doing,” Caperton said, “They’ve gone so above and beyond to make sure veterans in our area feel appreciated and celebrated.”
Each Veteran recipient is selected by a committee of previous honorees, not by bank associates, and the Veterans are selected based solely on their acts of service for our country, merits, and community involvement. “I know how meaningful the designation was to me,” Clinton said thinking on how it feels to select the next winner, “to go through their stories and read their great service records. It’s really an honor to be involved, truly is.”
Branson Bank’s Veteran of the Quarter is honored at a flag raising ceremony, presented with a customized Coin of Honor, and invited to share their story in newspaper and radio interviews. Seeing how people across the community, especially youth, look up to these brave Veterans is a perfect example of how Branson Bank’s efforts within the community mirror the values of the community itself.
