Grand Rapids State Bank proudly announces they were just named among the top 1-percent most extraordinary banks in the United States by The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™. Grand Rapids State Bank, a local Grand Rapids icon, was recognized with the Institute’s Banky™ Award for their commitment to excellence in banking and to their community. This recognition is given exclusively to the top 1-percent of community banks.

 “We are honored and humbled to have been recognized in this extraordinary way,” stated Noah Wilcox, president and CEO of Grand Rapids State Bank. “Grand Rapids State Bank has been making contributions to the community for over 100 years. Our communities are vitally important to us, have contributed to our success and that has allowed us to give back to the communities we service in so many important ways.

The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards exist to highlight the vital, yet often overlooked, role that local community banks play in our economy. Consumers use the Grammys to guide their music purchases, the Emmys to lead them to the best of television, and the Tonys to discover outstanding live theater…  And now, consumers have the Banky™ Awards as their guide to discovering the very best, most extraordinary banks in their communities, and in the country. This year, the Bankys™ recognized the top 1-percent of banks—The Best Banks in America™.

Julie Wilcox, Vice President of Marketing at Grand Rapids State Bank, stated, “we are proud to be recognized within the top 1-percent of banks in America. It’s an honor and privilege to be within this elite circle of banks and we couldn’t be more proud of our marketing efforts that played a vital role in receiving this award.”
