Message from the President
Dear Customer,
Happy New Year! Our country survived the fiscal cliff! Now our representatives get to deal with the debt ceiling. As Gilda Radners’ character Rosanne Rosanna Danna used to say on Saturday Night Live, “It’s always something”. There are plenty of other sources to bombard you with doom and gloom so I’ll spare you my take.

Let’s talk about relationships. What do you expect from your bank? Always being there? Helping out in a fix? Taking the time to really listen to your needs? At Guaranty Bank, we know our future depends on great customer relationships. We also know as customers’ needs change, we need to anticipate and change as well. And we’re doing just that.

Do you open your statements, or just toss them out with the rest of your junk mail? Or do you shred it after taking a quick look just to make sure nothing crazy happened? You don’t have to deal with the gut wrenching scenario of never receiving it or if someone else got a hold of it.
