Schick. “This additional capital will help the Bank continue to grow in our current markets as well as provide us with the opportunity to enter new markets. While these are challenging times for many small businesses, of which we are one, we believe we have assembled a great leadership team and staff that will continue our growth and success for many years to come.”
