10 Years!!!

by Ed_Cooney 7. November 2012 05:03

In September, the employees of Affinity Bank gathered together to celebrate the bank’s 10th anniversary. We had a fantastic time celebrating this milestone and it truly felt more like a party than a corporate event. The team put together a slide show going back 10 years - wow - how some things have changed! A few hairlines grew higher, a few of the guy’s waist lines grew wider, and some of the outfits seemed to place the pictures in the 1980’s. We didn’t realize how antiquated our main office looked until we revisited the pictures prior to the 2010 renovation. We reminisced about the laughs we have had throughout the years, especially the holiday party on the “Fur Bus,” and the day employees sported mullets.

We counted 26 children and grandchildren born from the current 24 employees during their tenure at Affinity. Maybe something is in the water?  The average employee tenure is 6 years and we have seven employees with over 8 years. Not too shabby considering we only started with 7 employees and added very little staff until our third year. We started the bank prior to the advent of remote deposit technology and today are one of its community bank leaders in the Southeast.  

We have much to celebrate as we will be one of the surviving banks in the worst banking market in the world - nearly 1 out of every 3 banks in Georgia has failed since 2008. We have experienced the ups and downs which come along with a tough economy together. Together, we will continue our journey of building something special for employees and clients alike. Together, we will continue to find ways to make the banking experience easier and more personal for our clients. And, while we have a way to go, together, we remain resolute on our initial vision of “redefining the way banking is conducted in the 21st Century.”

More people should look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you surely have the gift.
