Success Stories

As Nosh and Gather continued to grow, Atkinson became disenchanted with the big bank where she was doing her business banking. There was no human interaction. It felt cold and impersonal. She turned to other local business owners for recommendations. When BankCherokee was endorsed by a friend, she connected with Heidi Gesell, BankCherokee’s President, and CEO via Zoom.
