Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH -

The Payson Cham­ber of Com­merce named Cen­tral Bank the Busi­ness of the Month for March 2015. Founded in 1891, Cen­tral Bank is Utah County’s old­est bank and the true def­i­ni­tion of a com­mu­nity bank. The bank is head­quar­tered in Provo, has 10 lo­ca­tions through­out Utah County and has been voted “Best Bank” in the Best of Utah Val­ley Read­ers Choice Awards for the last three years in a row. Cen­tral Bank has been serv­ing the Payson com­mu­nity for 35 years.

“I’m hon­ored to ac­cept this award on be­half of Cen­tral Bank. I be­lieve this award speaks to the ex­cel­lent bank em­ploy­ees that work hard to sup­port our cus­tomers and Cen­tral Bank’s ded­i­ca­tion to giv­ing back to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and cham­pi­oning op­por­tu­ni­ties for small busi­ness devel­op­ment,” said Brian Hulet, manager of Cen­tral Bank’s Payson of­fice.

The Payson Cham­ber of Com­merce chose to rec­og­nize Cen­tral Bank be­cause of its many con­tri­bu­tions to the Payson com­mu­nity as well as its con­tin­u­ous sup­port to lo­cal busi­nesses. Here are a few of Cen­tral Bank’s con­tri­bu­tions in Payson that were men­tioned dur­ing the award cer­e­mony on Mon­day, March 18:
