"This recognition is a credit to our talented and hardworking team who care about our customers and about each other – and it shows. We strive to be the bank of choice in the Southeast, as well as the employer of choice, and these honors demonstrate our commitment to both."

Between one and five banks and up to 10 credit unions were awarded the best-in-state designation by Forbes. Nationwide, 135 banks made the list, available here.

Respondents ranked banks on overall recommendation and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice.
