Presidents Message: Growth & Success
We’ve continued to update you on our significant growth and success over the course of 2018—we’ve reported on new milestones, new capabilities, new team members. We’ve enhanced our digital and mobile offerings and convenience. You’ve been telling us that you need more yield on your savings, and we’ve responded by revamping our High-Yield and Premium Interest Checking Accounts and increasing our yields on Share Certificates.
We’ve also listened to the needs of local businesses, and made some big changes to our business checking accounts, including our Commercial Checking Account, which now offers Remote Deposit Capture capabilities. We also introduced our new Business Money Market Plus account with tiered dividends for better returns on your money.
Increased Commercial Services
A number of these efforts stem from the purchase of High Desert Bank in June, which provided us with new opportunities to grow and develop our role as the only financial institution headquartered here in Central Oregon. Sensible, sustainable growth in multiple areas allows us to strengthen our base, become more diversified, and find ways to deliver more services and value to the community that has contributed to the success of our organization over the last 60 years. It means growing deeper—not just broader.
By expanding our services to help our thriving business community in new ways, we provide important support to organizations that form the foundation of a healthy local economy. We play a part in strengthening job opportunities and increasing livability in Central Oregon. And it ensures that Mid Oregon will be more resilient, so we can be here for you during good times—and the not-so good times too.
We’re Not Done
We’ve accomplished a lot so far in 2018, but we’re not done yet. Mid Oregon is investing in enhanced technology, new services, and additional products for both our consumers and businesses that will make your life easier, keep your money safer, and help it grow faster. Stay tuned for more good news to come in 2019.
