Citizens Union Bank’s commitment to diversity includes reaching out to, and lifting up, women business owners. Experts say many of the best business plans for start-ups are written by women, and women tend to be phenomenal multi-taskers, which is key to growing a thriving business.
“As a community bank, we are uniquely qualified to provide small businesses with a superior customer-centric relationship that enables them to grow and be successful,” says Debbie Prewitt, Market President for CUB. “Women-owned businesses have grown at a pace that is five times faster than the national average since the Great Recession in 2007. These businesses are creating jobs. For CUB, supporting women is good business.”*
