"As the local community bank, we are always focused on giving back to the communities we serve.

Managing Editor for CardRates, Adam West, who oversees content and regularly interviews some of the payments industry's biggest influencers had this to say about ChoiceOne Bank, "In a Nutshell: ChoiceOne Bank begins and ends in farm country, working since 1898 on behalf of farmers, businesspeople, and families in West Michigan. As times have changed, the bank has too, but one thing that hasn't is its commitment to the people who help its communities succeed. With ambitious and creative programs that make financial services accessible to temporary agricultural workers and by helping area students start career savings accounts, ChoiceOne is building a better Michigan for today and tomorrow, earning it our Editor's Choice™ Award for Community Commitment."

At the end of the day, it is how we treat one another that will set us apart…and make us the best bank in Michigan," said Potes. "We have a team that really cares, and it shows. We appreciate for recognizing our community commitment."
