Partnership Profiles: Plains State Bank

Lori Saunders Hilman, President & Chief Operating Officer interviewed by Jenna Armstrong, Partnership CEO

“We have assembled a great group of bankers that are very passionate about banking with small business. We live it, we breathe it, it’s part of our culture. We want to match our products and services with the needs of the small business owner. That’s why we are here.”

Interview questions:

  1. During the pandemic, we saw many businesses needing support from their banks to get access too PPP. Many businesses had accounts with banks out of state or had a hard time getting through to their banker during this time. Talk to us about the importance of choosing the right bank for your business?
  2. Developing a relationship with your bank is key. What questions should businesses ask when looking for a bank or what advice can you give regarding how to build a healthy relationship with your bank?
  3. Many businesses aren’t aware of the multitude of funding options available to them – whether they are expanding their business, need working capital or even starting their business. Can you give a quick overview of different types of loans and how a business can determine the right one for their needs?
  4. What sets Plains State Bank apart from other banks?
