Carter Bank & Trust was recently recognized as a Corporate Partner of the Year by the Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) for 2020.
The Bank was recognized for its efforts in spearheading the Eco Ambassadors Council (EAC); a group of local businesses throughout the region that have invested in environmental programs and projects to make a positive, visible impact for the communities they serve.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized by DRBA for our role in establishing the Eco-Ambassador Council,” Carter Bank & Trust President Brad Langs said. “Carter Bank & Trust is committed to actively engaging and partnering to advance environmental, social and governance initiatives that strengthen and enrich the communities we serve. We take a holistic approach to community involvement that extends beyond providing banking products and services and our commitment to organizations such as DRBA and EAC are both such examples.”
Tyler Carter, a commercial banker with Carter Bank & Trust, was instrumental in getting EAC started.
“I was honored to accept the award on behalf of Carter Bank & Trust,” Carter said. “This award not only recognizes our role in forming the Eco Ambassador Council, but is a further testament to the Bank’s commitment to serve, grow and sustain our local community. We look forward to continuing to bring positive change in our communities, through the efforts of the Eco Ambassador Council.”
Carter Bank & Trust will support additional local and regional-based non-profit organizations throughout its footprint, through its CARE Forward campaign, making a monetary donation for every checking account opened in a branch. Donations for checking accounts opened online will be made to the American Red Cross.
