Last year was exceptional in many ways. We made strong strides in our continual pursuit to be the best business-focused community bank in the markets we serve. Partnering with our clients to help them succeed is the best part of our job and why so many of us here at Jonah Bank have spent our entire career as bankers.
In each of the past two years we have extended more than $20 million in new credit commitments—expanding relationships with existing clients as well as welcoming many new clients. This is a powerful example of how we're pairing our steady growth as a company with our focus on helping clients reach their financial goals.
We continued shaping our footprint through organic growth last year. We deepend our commercial loan department and mortgage loan department benches to allow us to continue to grow.
Our hardworking, talented team delivers customized solutions and exceptional service to businesses, individuals and families and all with the community banking spirit our clients have come to expect. For example, community involvement activities are a vital element of Jonah Bank. In addition to contributing financial donations to many deserving non-profits, last year employees volunteered numerous hours at their favorite charities, and we look forward to helping to Build a Better Wyoming.
We are pleased to report Jonah Bank continues to be financially strong and well positioned for the future. Our balance sheet and other key financial indicators included in this report illustrate our financial strength.
We understand we must earn the right to serve you now and into the future by offering exceptional service along with consistent value and unmatched expertise. Our entire team welcomes every opportunity to exceed your expectations.
