We’re never going to be satisfied…because there’s always somebody coming after you. We always have to evolve and keep getting better at what we do all the time. You can’t just stay happy with the status quo.”

The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™ proudly inducted First National Bank of Syracuse into the Best Banks in America™ Hall of Fame on April 21, 2022 at an elegant ceremony at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida. The ceremony was part of the Extraordinary Banking™ Awards sponsored by the Institute.

Speaking of President and CEO Chris Floyd and his exemplary team, one of their customers encapsulated it beautifully: “First National sees greater possibility. They look beyond the spreadsheet. They look at a person’s character and who they are and see if that person could be a good bet. First National bets on the spirit of entrepreneurship. They give people a chance when no one else would.”
