Thank you for taking the time to look around our website. If you are reading my letter, you have invested some of your valuable time finding out about our bank, which we really appreciate. While you are here I want to share an interesting fact with you.
Lafayette Community Bank is the only locally owned and operated bank in Tippecanoe County.
You might be saying to yourself, "Brad, that's great to know, but what does that have to do with me and where I bank?"
Right up front you will notice a difference with our bank. You will notice our commitment to the community as you approach our brand new Corporate Office in downtown Lafayette. If you should happen to visit our new West Lafayette location, you will notice the same level of commitment and devotion to the community we proudly serve. When we chose to invest in our new buildings, we worked to capture and appreciate the significant architecture you see all over greater Lafayette.
Once inside our bank, you will be greeted warmly by smiling faces that are glad to see you. In no time at all, our employees will know you by name. You will find that they really care about you and your business. Our employees are also deeply committed to our community. You might see them volunteering to read to a local elementary school student or participating in a walk to raise money for a local charity, or even coaching one of our youth sports teams.
When you call us, you are going to talk to a live person that works for our local bank. If you have a question, the answer is always right here.
As for loan decisions, we make all loan decisions right here, and we get back to you quickly. We know your time is very important to you. We also provide financial consultation where desired. We want you to know that we are here to serve you as your financial partner, now and in the future.
As with any business, our bank strives to earn a profit. Our earnings stay within our community so we can continue to reinvest in the community we call home.
Being your local, committed partner in banking separates us from the other banks located in Tippecanoe County. You are the reason we are here, and we are deeply committed to providing local services and care that no other bank can provide. Come on in and give us a chance to earn your business!
Thanks for taking your time to read my letter!
Bradley W Marley,
President and CEO
