What Employees Say

“Banking is really a ‘people’ business. It is about relationships, and it takes people to build those relationships. This career allows me to make the best of my skills, especially in ‘people’ development.” - Heidi Gesell, CEO

I really enjoy the ability to work side-by-side with customers to accomplish their goals. Thinking outside the box is encouraged to help get things done for our customers. There are no "small" customers here - every business relationship is valued and appreciated. The employees at BankCherokee are awesome!!  Friendly, dedicated, professional folks with a great work ethic and attitude." - Julie

I have had the pleasure of being employed by BankCherokee since March 2002. At the time I wanted to work for a bank with a great reputation for giving back to the community. Through projects such as tax preparation for low-income households, Paint-A-Thon, Habitat for Humanity, Gifts of Hope, financial literacy and the BankCherokee food shelf at Neighborhood House, I have seen enormous benefits to both the community and the organization. I take great pride in the small part I play, but even greater pride when I am asked, ‘where do you work?’ and my response is “BankCherokee.” - Bill

"I can see so many good things this organization does for our community. Every morning when I walk in I look forward to seeing new faces and my long time customers – I feel they are part of my family." - Ana

"I believe that it is community banking like it should be.  Strong, independent, relationship based and service oriented.  The employees live and work in our community.  They know our customers and our neighborhoods, and that helps them provide outstanding service.  BankCherokee has been doing business this way since 1908." - Steve

"I feel supported by all levels of management and valued as an employee. Coming to work as a member of the BankCherokee team is both an honor and a blessing. I look forward to many more years here." - Lisbeth
