ICBA Independent Banker, the award-winning magazine of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) and the nation’s number-one source for community banking news, recognized Vintage Bank as an ICBA Top Performer in its June issue.

Vintage Bank’s recognition is based on its operational efficiencies throughout 2013.

“Whether it’s a small community bank serving a rural area or a large community bank serving a metro and suburban area, you’ll find they operate with the same focus by always putting their customers and communities first,” said Chris Lorence, ICBA executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “Vintage Bank knows their local market and they thrive because of that expertise. We commend Vintage Bank for its ongoing dedication, enthusiasm and devotion to the banking industry.”

As part of its annual recognition of high-performing ICBA member institutions, ICBA Independent Banker pulled year-end FDIC data to identify the community banks with the highest performance metrics in six asset-size categories.

The rankings separately recognize top-performing Subchapter C corporation banks and Subchapter S corporation banks.

“Vintage Bank is pleased to be recognized as an ICBA Top Performer,” said Jeff Frazier, Chairman/CEO, Vintage Bank. “As a proud member of the Ellis County community, we credit our loyal local customers and dedicated employees for our success. We look forward to serving the unique needs of our community and helping it grow and prosper in the years to come.”
