Since 1908 Park National Bank has been invested in the success of customers and communities. Park National Bank builds partnerships and sees each customer as the unique person or business they are.
“At Park National Bank, our guiding principle is to look beyond our own objectives and tune into the needs of others … to operate with an Outward Mindset. The Outward Mindset is a book by The Arbinger Institute that sheds light on the sheer power of a mindset shift from inward to outward. The Outward Mindset is foundational to how we serve others, and you’ll notice it in all we do.”
At the local level Park National Bank has regional presidents, such as John Kimberly, who lead their banking team and build relationships within their communities. As Regional President for Park National Bank’s Carolina Division, John oversees offices in Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. A North Carolina native, he and his family have proudly called Asheville home for more than 20 years.
Having this type of local leadership within an organization of this scale (1778 associates with offices in four state) gives customers the best of both worlds – the benefits of a local, community bank plus resources including lending power, technological sophistication and involvement in local communities. Park National Bank is a family of community banking teams that deliver an exceptional breadth and depth of resources to individuals and businesses, with a hands-on, personalized approach to service and strong local leadership that invests deeply in the places where they live and work.
“The Chamber is a natural fit for us! Our bankers care about helping their communities thrive and prosper, but our commitment goes beyond finance. We believe the way we treat our clients, associates and communities is what sets us apart.
Our clients count on us to support the people and organizations that work to build our communities. We believe strong communities are built with local volunteers, donations and leadership, and we are proud to be Chamber members and support its mission.”
