Wausau, Wis. (June 24, 2019) — Peoples State Bank was voted as “Best Bank or Credit Union” and “Best Mortgage Company” in the Wausau Daily Herald 2019 Best of Marathon County Awards. Peoples Wealth Management was voted “Best Financial Planning."
This marks the eighth year in a row that Peoples has been honored as the best bank. In 2019, “Best Local Bank” and “Best Credit Union” were combined into one category.
“Our employees have built great relationships with our customers and that is really what this award is all about,” said Scott Cattanach, Peoples State Bank President and CEO. “We strive to help our customers see their financial potential, and work hard to provide them the best customer service.”
In addition to being named best bank in the awards, Peoples took top honors as the best mortgage company, the first year the award has been offered.
“Our entire mortgage team is honored by this award, which is a reflection of the time and effort they spend with our mortgage customers,” said Jeff Saxton, Peoples State Bank Vice President – Mortgage Lending. “Our lenders take a personal interest in every mortgage customer and take pride in helping them find the right financial solution for their dream home.”
Cattanach notes Peoples employees are heavily invested in the communities where they work, giving back more than 8,000 hours of volunteer time in 2018. Employees are encouraged to donate their time and talent to non-profit organizations, sports teams, schools, clubs, and community programs. Employees are provided 20 hours of volunteer time off (VTO) per year to make it easier to volunteer during their normally scheduled work hours.
