FGB Named #1 Best Small Bank 2021
In Newsweek’s first ranking of the financial institutions that best serve their customers’ needs in today’s challenging times, First Guaranty Bank was named the No. 1 BEST SMALL BANK IN AMERICA! And when compared to all other banks in the state of Louisiana, we were named the No. 1 BEST SMALL BANK IN LOUISIANA, too! This recognition is amazing and a true testament to the hard work of the entire team. We hold this title with pride and commit to continuing to be the best small bank in America for all time.
"This is a totally unexpected and overwhelming honor. It is a tribute to each and every one of our First Guaranty Bank members and to our dedication and determination to be a true community bank providing the best service possible to our communities and customers. This is the goal of all of us from the Board of Directors throughout the entire Bank."
- Alton B. Lewis, President & CEO
"It is truly a great honor to be the #1 Bank in the country and the best small bank in Louisiana. This is a testament to the efforts and contributions of every team member at FGB. Although we have known it for a while, I’m excited that the rest of the country will get to learn about the great team at FGB!"
