"I received some good advice from a client of mine years ago about the importance of communication. He said, ‘Of all the things you as a bank and banker have provided my business, the thing I value most is honest and prompt communication. There’s a lot of banks that will finance my business, but there are very few that will effectively communicate with me on a regular basis."
