Partnerships that Matter: Enabling Creativity in Montgomery County
Bankers and artists don’t usually go together, but in the case of Revere Bank and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, it’s a partnership making a big impact!
Revere has been working with the Arts and Humanities Council, a local nonprofit that cultivates and supports excellence in the arts and humanities in the region, for more than three years. The Council decided to switch its banking relationship after having challenges working with a national bank.
“Our former bank’s customer service was difficult – even with a location around the corner, it was impossible to complete everyday banking tasks,” said Suzan Jenkins, Arts and Humanities Council CEO. “Even though we were a big customer in a lot of ways, we were still considered small fish for the bigger bank. We needed much more personal banking.”
That’s when Jenkins and her team were introduced to Revere and decided to make the switch.
“The Revere team has been incredibly diligent and thoughtful about our business,” said Jenkins. “They always make sure we have all the tools we need to get the job done. It’s been a wonderful working relationship.”
And with the responsibility of managing almost the entire arts budget of Montgomery County through grants, it’s imperative for the organization to be able to transfer money efficiently.
“It’s critical to have a bank that I can develop a relationship with to help me service the organizations I work with,” added Jenkins. “If we can’t do it in an easy and efficient way, we wouldn’t have a contract with the Montgomery County government. It’s critical to do it right and in a timely manner.”
Jenkins has been happy with her decision to switch banks and appreciates the Revere team’s dedication.
“The Revere team is always asking what else they can do to be helpful,” said Jenkins. “They go above and beyond to make sure everything is as it needs to be, and I really appreciate that.”
At Revere Bank, our partnerships help businesses become even more successful. We’re proud of the relationships we’ve built with local businesses to help improve the communities we serve.
