(Spencer, NY) — Tioga State Bank was featured in the April/May issue of the national publication, Business View Magazine. The article centered around the bank’s community-first commitment to serving its customers and communities, especially during the early months of the Coronavirus outbreak.
In the article, Tioga State Bank President and CEO Robert Fisher stated, “The bank processed almost 950 loans during the pandemic, averaging around $69,000 per loan, with its largest loan amounting to $2.7 million. “We were doing whatever we could to help small businesses that needed the money to keep their businesses going – and it felt really good,” Fisher added. “Never have I seen our team come together and work like that. People were working on evenings, nights, and weekends because it was truly a mission to help our community and customers get through this.”
In addition, the TSB Foundation, Inc. and bank employees worked out in the community helping with food distribution to residents in need and to front-line health care providers as a thank you for their countless hours of dedication.
