Joanne and I want to wish you a very healthy, happy holiday season. As we reflect on the many holidays in December, we are especially grateful for the care and support you have extended to fellow customers, our employees and all those in our communities who are working diligently to keep us safe during this Covid-19 pandemic.
As your local community bank, we are seeing an increase in new customers because of our ability to quickly meet the needs of the individuals, families and businesses in the area. Our size allows us to be more agile and provide more immediate support with new loans and loan forgiveness programs. We encourage anyone facing financial difficulties to please call us at 734.475.4210 and speak with a banker.
Chelsea State Bank will continue to make banking as easy as possible whether you prefer to come into our offices by appointment, use our full-service drive-thru lanes, give us a call or simply use any of our online banking services to apply for a loan, open a checking account, transfer money, pay bills and deposit checks with our mobile app. We are here to serve you in whatever way feels safest and most convenient for you.
In June, I announced that I will be passing the reigns over to Joanne in January as I begin working part time. Joanne will become President and CEO, the first non-Mann or Schaible in 99 years, and I am so excited. She is outstanding. I will remain Chairman of the Board. My plans are to work in the office a couple days a week and then spend more time with my wife Anne and our grandchildren. I look forward to seeing you in 2021!
This year has truly tested all of us regarding our health, safety and wellbeing. Please continue to stay safe and know we are here for you. As we celebrate the holiday season, we have so much for which to be grateful…especially you. Thank you for banking with Chelsea State Bank.
Wishing you a blessed holiday season,
John K. Mann
Chief Executive Officer
