Forbes Names First Bank as Best-In-State Bank


For the second year in a row, First Bank has been chosen as one of America’s best banks by Forbes for its 2020 Best-In-State Banks list.

This year, First Bank was ranked the number one bank in North Carolina, and it remains the only one on the NC list that is headquartered there. According to Forbes, banks were scored based on “… an independent survey of more than 25,000 U.S. consumers who were asked to rate banks at which they have or previously had checking accounts. Participants made recommendations regarding overall satisfaction; they also assessed banks in the following areas: ‘Trust,’ ‘Terms & Conditions,’ ‘Branch Services,’ Digital Services,’ and ‘Financial Advice.’ ”

“To make the list as one of America’s best banks for the second year in a row is further evidence that we’re doing the right things for our customers and our communities,” said Mike Mayer, First Bank CEO and president. “Everything we do is about building relationships and helping our customers achieve their financial goals for themselves, their families, and their businesses. This award is a nice recognition of that effort.”

We truly and sincerely thank everyone who has chosen to bank with us. It’s your feedback and your support that has gotten us this wonderful recognition. The NYC Times Square image above is from our partners at NASDAQ who helped us celebrate this momentous occasion.
