CEO Corner

by Craig Howie
President & CEO

I’m honored to be selected by ACBI’s Board of Directors to lead the Bank into the future and excited to be working with such a talented team of dedicated professionals. Thank you to Jon Evans for his over 20 years of service as your President and CEO. Jon did a great job of growing the Bank, developing BITS as a valuable service for our clients and positioning the Bank for success in the future.

ACBB Product Spotlight

ACBB Cash Logistics Solutions

To meet customer demand, financial institutions must access and process cash quickly, securely and economically.  Striking the correct balance of availability while minimizing the cost of transportation, processing and idle cash is paramount.  ACBB has partnered with one of the premiere teller cash recycler companies in North America, ARCA, to offer clients a comprehensive and tailored solution to meet cash handling needs.  Our shared goal is to offer institutions the ability to enhance customer experience, teller efficiency and the financial cost of transactions by leveraging automation.  We put technology behind your teller to enhance the customer experience.

Compliance Anchor 2020 Focus

Compliance Anchor launched seven years ago and has grown to over 115 financial institutions in 16 states and counting.  We built services around the compliance and BSA needs of our clients including monthly news updates and online discussion sessions called “Veterans’ Venues”. Our approach is to foster collaborative relationships via email, online discussions and sharing of resources.

Farewell from Jon Evans

by Jon Evans
Former President & CEO

What a great run!  I was lucky enough to spend 20 years at ACBB with 18 as CEO.  I’ve met so many fine and talented people during that time.  Just as important, I have gained a true and deep appreciation for the value of community banks and the difference they make, most notably funding the needs of their communities, both the people and their businesses.  They also keep their customers monies safe; donate charitable dollars and sweat equity to their communities; provide jobs; and deliver the personal touch, which is truly the foundation of our industry, while embracing the future with electronic banking solutions.

ACBB Employee Focus

Earlier last year, we launched a comprehensive search for a Chief Technology Officer to lead our technology efforts. Throughout the process, we met with a host of impressive candidates – all eager to help ACBB accelerate in the race to deliver outstanding, tech-enabled customer experiences – and I’m pleased to share that Rich Thompson has accepted this key role.
