This blog has been created and is managed by Brendon Matthews. I (Brendon) have been in banking since 2002, live and work in Bluffton, Ohio, am married to an amazingly independent hometown girl, and have three beautiful, equally independent little girls. I work for First National Bank of Pandora, a three branch community bank that serves Putnam, Allen, and Hancock counties in Northwest Ohio. The Bank is supportive of this blog but doesn’t endorse or provide the content. The purpose of this blog is threefold:
1) to share how a community banker sees community banking;
2) to inform local community members and any Googler about various aspects of community banking and the banking industry as a whole;
3) and to explain why community banking is vital to the success of communities across the country. I hope you find the posts insightful, entertaining, and worth the read.
