Commercial Team at Fidelity Bank
“Our technology, products and pricing are on par with—and, in many cases, better—than most other financial institutions within our market.”
Big banks are getting bigger and colder—tellers replaced with machines, national chains controlling local branches. It can make a customer feel isolated, especially when a problem crops up. But at Fidelity Bank, a full-service bank headquartered in New Orleans, the drive is clear: focus on the people. Technology and expansion have allowed larger banks without strong community ties to take the people out of the banking experience on their side, but this can leave members of the community out in the cold.
Thanks to its history and location, Fidelity Bank is ideally suited to serve the community. Jamie Sablich, Senior Vice President and Commercial Bank Manager, points out that Fidelity’s goal is to re-establish the banker as a person the client can trust, rely on and turn to for whatever they need. “Our primary and only focus is on the New Orleans metropolitan area,” said Sablich, “and few institutions can still say that.”
This focus is part of what makes Fidelity Bank a financial frontrunner. As the industry growth results in more and more bank consolidation, options for consumers shrink—but Fidelity, as a Mutual, can’t be purchased or acquired. The bank will stay local, independent and personalized to best serve the needs of the community. The local bankers utilize the same technology as the big banks combining that with the personalized attention of a community bank to give their clients accurate, helpful and personal advice.
“Our technology, products and pricing are on par with—and, in many cases, better—than most other financial institutions within our market,” added Sablich. Local Fidelity bankers, focusing on a consultative approach in conjunction with the technology the industry and customer has come to expect, allow Fidelity Bank to provide a unique, desired and forgotten banking experience.
