“Although we’re proud to receive this validation of the health and stability of our Bank, it’s still our customers’ satisfaction that remains our priority,” said Bill Penney, President and CEO of Marine Bank. “But, we hope this rating will entice people to give our community bank a try and enjoy big bank convenience while experiencing exceptional personal service.”
