WEST POINT – Seifried & Brew LLC, a community bank risk management firm, named Citizens and Farmers Bank (C&F Bank) in its 2013 Top 15th Percentile of Community Banks. To gain entry into this distinguished ranking, C&F Bank demonstrated exemplary performance of balancing risk and reward based on the Bank's S&B Total Risk/Return Composite Ranking. This is no small feat considering that the bank not only survived the financial crisis but actually thrived. This supports Seifried & Brew's belief that conservative, traditional community banking is the strength of our financial system.
"Certainly we appreciate the recognition, but it comes as the result of the hard work of so many people throughout our entire organization as well as the loyalty of our many fine customers. We are very grateful for their support and will continue to work to make our company an even better organization in order to better serve our customers and communities, to provide an enjoyable and fulfilling place to work for our staff members, and to give a good return to our shareholders," stated Larry G. Dillon, President and Chief Executive Officer of C&F Bank.
C&F Financial Corporation is the parent of C&F Bank, which was founded in 1927 in West Point, Va., and is one of the oldest independent community banking organizations headquartered in Virginia.
