The Town of Ocean Isle Beach’s First Bank experience.

The town administrator and finance officer, Daisy Ivey, weighed in on Ocean Isle’s relationship with First Bank.

How has partnering with First Bank helped the town?

Fortunately, we haven’t faced many financial challenges since we started our partnership; but nonetheless, First Bank has helped us simplify many of our processes for loans and other regular transactions.

What is unique about the financial needs of a township as opposed to a company or organization?

As a township, we support and help government employees, residents and visitors, and deal with town projects. On top of that, we’re a coastal town so we deal with unique challenges like flooding and hurricanes that other towns don’t normally encounter. First Bank works with us on all of these challenges and issues, and helps ensure we are supported through every season.

First Bank exemplifies their commitment to customer satisfaction on a daily basis. I would recommend them to anyone looking for banking solutions, whether you have personal, business or township banking needs.

Daisy Ivey, Town Administrator and Finance Officer
