President's Message


It is hard to believe that the month of August is already here and we are sending our kids back to school. I love summers in Nebraska: baseball games,spending time at the lake, spending time with friends, and watching my kids grow up. As the summer ends it makes me think of how things change. Summer is sliding into fall and a whole new set of adventures will take place in our lives.

The same can be said about banking. We see a lot of change (new adventure) in our industry. Many organizations might see change as a bad thing, however one thing that our bank has always done extremely well is adapt to and embrace change. How do we do it? One of the reasons we can do this is because of our great TEAM. We have a lot of tools and resources available to assist in our customers’ banking experience, but one of the constants at GSB are the faces you see.

We have a tradition of celebrating milestone anniversaries here at the bank. It almost seems unprecedented today to think of working at a company for longer than twenty years. This year I’ve had the privilege to recognize Jan Neujahr (25 years), Marcy Slack (35 years), Kristi Edson (40 years), and Nate Wyatt (15 years). Each of these employees, along with the rest of our team, are what sets our bank apart.Recognizing our employees and celebrating what they do is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.

Our bank is committed to continue to change with the banking industry. We want to be the first to provide tools to help you make banking easier. On that same note, we are committed to continue to invest in our team members. We have the best team of employees available to assist you with your banking needs.

Thank you to all of our customers. We appreciate your business and will continue to make your experience with our bank the best that it can be.
