March 2020: Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, commends Mountain Commerce Bank, Knoxville, Tennessee on its achievement of another 5-Star Superior Rating. Not only has Mountain Commerce Bank earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for nine consecutive quarters. Earning this 5-Star rating indicates this bank closed out calendar 2019 excelling in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.
“As the president of BauerFinancial, I am often asked what it takes to be a 5-Star bank,” reflects Karen Dorway, president of the research firm. “Like so many other things in life, success in banking boils down to knowledge. Knowledge of banking, of course, but knowledge of its customers and the communities the bank serves are equally important. This intimacy enables the bank to steer clear of danger and work with customers for a common goal. It’s what gets so many community banks, like Mountain Commerce Bank, through the tough times unscathed.”
