it’s all about


Good Reasons to switch You need more. You can work faster in a one-toone relationship with an experienced, decisionmaking banker. You can take action with more confidence when you get more attention, strategic advice and innovative solutions. Instead of treating banking as a commodity, we believe in building lasting relationships.

It’s all about people. As Chris Karman of Amish Mills, one of our clients, said recently, “We use CFBank because we feel CFBank understands our business better than other banks. CFBank takes the time to meet with us in our offices, tour our factories, and really gets to know everything about our business. With CFBank we not only have a great bank that offers a wide range of financial options – but we have a real partner in growing our business. We switched to CFBank from a large bank and couldn’t be happier.”

Why a smaller bank is bigger. Financial solutions shaped precisely to your needs. Integrated personal and business banking. A complete range of financial options along with personal help. All of which give you several important reasons to switch your business banking to CFBank.
