Choice Bank was recognized as a top community bank in the United States in the S&P Global Market Intelligence’s 2022 Top 50 Community Banks $3B-$10B report. Choice was ranked the No. 3 top-performing community bank in the nation, this places Choice Bank within the top 1% of banks in the United States.

This achievement was possible due to the valuable contributions of all our team members across all departments and locations. This recognition is a testament to our status as a stable, strong bank and our dedicated #PeopleFirst values. As a privately held community bank, Choice remains well-capitalized and well-positioned to continue to serve our customers and community.

S&P Global Market Intelligence launched these rankings in 2011 to assess the performance of community banks and credit unions. The division ranks institutions based on returns, growth, and efficiency, but places a premium on the strength and risk profile of balance sheets.

“We do our best work every day,” Brian Johnson, Choice Bank CEO, said. “I’m always delighted by our team’s level of commitment and devotion to our customers and willingness to go above and beyond. I think that commitment creates a foundation which makes this not only a great place to work, but a great place to bank.”

  • 2014: #8 Community Bank $500 Million to $5 Billion in Assets
  • 2013: #1 Community Bank $500 Million to $5 Billion in Assets

“The people on our team are the fuel that powers the engine that is taking us great places,” Brian said. Devotion to the community and to putting customers at the front of their business model has led Choice Bank to be recognized as a Top Performing Community Bank by the Independent Community Bankers of America from 2014-2020 and as the #1 Ag Lender in North Dakota in 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2021.
