Community: It’s the Only Way to Bank
A Message from Joey Root, President & CEO

A Community is defined as a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common. A further definition of community is a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

April is National Community Bank Month. During this month, we community bankers are asked to reach out to our customers and the entire community and let them know how much we appreciate them. First Liberty is entirely dependent on the communities we serve – it’s where we find our customers, it’s where we find our employees, and to the extent possible, we use vendors located in our community.

Most of our clients are small, local businesses and folks that make greater Oklahoma City their home.  You are our doctor, our accountant, our kid’s homeroom teacher. We are friends, neighbors, and customers of your businesses. Hopefully, we are your banker.

The largest banks are very important to the overall United States and Global economy. However, small, community banks are also critical. It is the fact that we are in your community, that we have shared interests, attitudes, and goals. We get to know our clients – their stories, their families, their hopes and dreams. This in-depth knowledge allows us to extend credit and provide financial services to customers in ways that would be impossible for our nation’s largest banks. Lending to small businesses is particularly important as it relates to community banks – after all, over 50% of our workforce is employed at a small business.

We will see you soon – some of you in our bank lobby and many others somewhere out in this great community we share.

Please don't hesitate to contact me at 405.608.1903 or jroot@myfirstliberty.com if there is anything I can do for you.

Best regards,

Joey P. Root
President & CEO
