We would like to take a moment to show our appreciation for The Peoples Bank.
Founded in 1910, The Peoples Bank has served Kent & Queen Anne’s Counties and the Eastern Shore for over 100 years. The bank has a consistent history of outstanding service in the form of lending programs, customer satisfaction and involvement in its communities. They are proud of their multi-generation relationships and traditions. A central part of their plan is to remain an independent community bank for the second millennium to serve their customers, shareholders, and communities.
Peoples Bank continues to build on the traditions of the past while working through the challenges of the present. Excellent customer service remains our primary cornerstone. The Peoples Bank has had only six presidents in its history; Dr. H. Benge Simmons, who was the first president, served until his death in 1945; Charles F. Wheatley, Sr., served from 1946 until his death in 1956; A. Parks Rasin, Jr., served from 1957 to 1975; E. Roy Owens, served from 1975 to 2002; and Thomas G. Stevenson served from 2002 to 2012. Ralph W. Dowling assumed the Presidency in 2012. Under the present guidance of Chairperson, E. Jean Anthony, and President/CEO Dowling, the Bank continues to grow and prosper. Its family of employees continues to respond to the challenges of modern banking with dedication and friendly service.
All of this past history has culminated into the excellent, sound, independent bank they are today. This history of consistent and steady growth has been accomplished without benefit of mergers. We want to continue to grow and progress with the community. They expect to have the pleasure of accomplishing this with the continued dedication of their employees and continued friendship, confidence, and goodwill of their present customers, and they look forward to serving many more!
