First Metro Bank was established to serve the financial needs of Northwest Alabama communities, businesses and citizens. First Metro Bank is a business, and therefore, one of its primary purposes is to provide the highest possible value in the long term for its owners, the shareholders. First Metro cannot fulfill its mission to serve Northwest Alabama banking customers over the long term without being profitable. We will accomplish profitability by charging our customers reasonable fees for services delivered through efficient management, by maintaining a productive staff, and through intelligent investment practices. We recognize that our customers are our most important assets. We will do everything within our ability and charter to deliver the services and products necessary to meet the needs of Northwest Alabama banking customers whether individual, family or business. The Bank must successfully deliver valuable financial products and services and integrate technological advances into our product packages, so that banking customers in our marketplace will choose First Metro. Without motivated, dedicated and responsible employees, it would be impossible for the Bank to render high quality customer service. This bank is and will continue to be a responsible employer dedicated to the well-being of its employees.
We will strive to be a leader in the communities that we serve and to always take this commitment seriously.
