President's Message

A message from Mike Anderson, Chairman, President & CEO

At First Bank of the Lake, our approach to banking isn’t all that complicated. We stand on our commitment to community, employees and, most importantly, our customers.

Locally, we are immersed in a market culture that is more diverse than most. We serve the banking needs of permanent residents, second homeowners who have embraced the lake lifestyle, as well as tourists who have chosen to spend their valuable free time in our beautiful community.

People are the foundation of our values and our success.
Our bankers and the strong relationships that they develop with our customers are at the core of our growth and success. We recruit top talent who apply their extraordinary experience and depth of knowledge to providing first-class service, trusted advice and the best financial products. Their dedication and commitment is truly inspiring and is the spark that ignites innovation, competition, and expansion.

As times change and the way we do business evolves, we remain focused on connecting people with the resources they need to achieve financial success and staying involved in the communities where we live and work. Small businesses are the cornerstone of our communities and the American Dream. While maintaining the best of our community banking roots, we are experiencing exciting growth in our robust Government Guaranteed Loan Division. We are proud to help finance the entrepreneurs and trailblazers as they grow and capitalize on opportunities. Not only is this going to expand our footprint, but we will transform businesses across the country.

Our intent is clear. We will be the bank businesses and consumers turn to first as their trusted partner. We will help unlock their potential and support their future. At the end of the day we are your neighbors, working together towards the same goal of building a strong family, better business and thriving community.
