Summit Bank Announces Central Oregon Courier Service

There will soon be another easy way to bank with Central Oregon’s Summit Bank at the corner of Colorado and Columbia without having to leave your office. Gary O’Connell, Central Oregon Market President of Summit Bank (NASDAQ: SBKO), today announced that Mindy York has been hired as Summit’s Business Client Courier for the Central Oregon Office.

“We want to make banking easier and more efficient for businesses. Our objective is to bring the bank to you.  Our existing technology combined with our new FDIC approved Business Client Courier offering allows us to leverage our presence in the region and do just that.” said O’Connell.  “Now, our business clients with cash deposit needs will have a Summit Bank colleague, who is licensed and bonded, to come to their offices, collect cash deposits, notarize documents, pick up checks and other documents and drive them back to bank.”  York is also available to deliver specific change orders or cash requests of various denominations to Summit Bank clients.

In addition to the in-house Business Client Courier service, tech-savvy banking options are available at Summit for businesses with locations throughout Central Oregon. Some of these solutions include mobile deposit for business, remote deposit and Direct Connect, which gives business online banking users the ability to download account information directly into QuickBooks®.

York has an expansive history of experience in banking roles at a former Central-Oregon based community bank including the position of Chief Operating Officer, Compliance Officer and Senior Operations Officer. The role of Business Client Courier, however, is a first for York.  “I look forward bringing our local community bank to Central Oregon business clients.” she said. “Not only will the in-house courier service be a value add to our clients, it will also be the only service of its kind provided by a bank in Central Oregon.”
