BETHLEHEM, Pa., Oct. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Embassy Bancorp, Inc. (OTCQX: EMYB) - Since its inception in November 2001, Bethlehem-based Embassy Bank for the Lehigh Valley has consistently achieved annual deposit growth, further shoring up its already-impressive deeply rooted ties to the very community for which the organization was founded and aptly named.
As a result, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s Summary of Deposits indicates that Embassy has once again gained deposit market share, claiming the 4th spot, overtaking PNC Bank in Lehigh & Northampton Counties combined as of June 30, 2023.
The FDIC’s Summary of Deposits (SOD) provides deposit totals for each of the more than 77,000 domestic offices operated by more than 4,600 FDIC-insured commercial and savings banks, savings associations, and U.S. branches of foreign banks. This report also indicated that Embassy remains the #1 Lehigh Valley-based bank in the combined counties for market share.
“We have so much to be proud of,” said David M. Lobach, Chairman, CEO and President, Embassy Bank. “The competition for deposits is real, and the economic challenges our customers face are just as real. By sticking to our core values – exceeding customer expectations and providing competitive banking products to businesses and families in the Lehigh Valley – we have earned the trust of our community to see them through to better days.”
In addition to its solid footing in market share, Embassy Bank was recently awarded a 5-star rating from BauerFinancial, Inc., the nation’s premier bank rating firm, recognizing the Bank for its financial strength and stability.
Earning Bauer’s coveted 5-Star superior rating confirms that Embassy Bank is one of the strongest banks in the country, excelling in areas such as, but not limited to, capital adequacy, profitability, reserves, liquidity, and asset quality.
