July 22, 2019 3:50 pm

The Citizens Bank has been honored as one of America’s Best Banks selected from 5,400 banks in the U.S. For 2019, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to produce their second annual look at the best banks in each state to gauge whose customers gave their banks the highest grades. According to Forbes, more than 25,000 customers in the U.S. were surveyed for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships.

Financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction based on five criteria: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice. Customers were asked 20 questions about their financial dealings with their bank.

“There’s no greater reward than being selected by your own customers as one of the best banks in the country,” said Jackie Hester, Vice President of Marketing for The Citizens Bank. “We always say we have the best bank customers, and now we know they believe we’re one of the best banks anywhere.”

The Citizens Bank was selected along with just three other banks in Mississippi. Between one and five banks in larger states were awarded best-in-state designation, based on the number of responses in each state. Overall, 149 banks qualified, or just 3.1% of the total number of U.S. financial institutions.

“It’s always our goal to provide the best services and amenities to please our customers and help them reach their financial goals,” Hester said. “We couldn’t do this without an awesome team of employees at our 23 branches across the state. We’re excited for the opportunity to continue serving our customers with Best In Class service.”
