The Art of Community Banking

Josh Siegel

As humans we are drawn to other humans. We find comfort and strength in bonding together to form close knit groups that keep in mind the interests of the entire group rather than focusing solely on the needs of any one individual. We call these groups communities, and we create them in nearly every aspect of our lives; our neighborhoods are communities; at work we may have another close-knit community and online we can have communities based on common interests not bound by geography. With community playing such a key role in our lives, it seems like a natural step to create financial communities. This was the vision that Josh Siegel had in 2003 when he founded StoneCastle Partners which has grown to be one of the largest and most respected firms in community banking.
