RCB Bank Named Top Bank in Oklahoma

Forbes magazine named RCB Bank as the best bank in the state of Oklahoma in 2020.

Forbes magazine named RCB Bank as the best bank in the state of Oklahoma in 2020. Nearly 25,000 consumers took a survey to discuss their current and former banking relationships. Based on consumer answers, RCB Bank ranked first in the state of Oklahoma based on its advantages in customer service, accessibility and financial advice. Banks were also ranked based on overall recommendations and satisfaction, trust, terms and conditions, branch services and digital services.

“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious award,” said RCB Bank President and CEO Roger Mosier. “Our employees are dedicated to their communities and building relationships with every person that walks through the door.”

RCB Bank began in Claremore, Oklahoma in 1936 after L.S. Robson was unable to secure a dependable loan with local banks. His son and current RCB Bank board member Frank Robson recalls why the motivation to start RCB Bank. “My dad started this bank because he knew if a community was ever going to grow, credit had to be available.”

It is this progressive spirit and commitment to local communities that motivates RCB Bank to offer small town service with the ability to handle big bank transactions. “Working with someone you know always makes the banking process easier,” said Claremore Market President Matt Mason. “We want what is best for the community because we live here too and know how important banks are to those communities.”

Ron Reiser Retirement

RCB Bank Pryor Market President Ron Reiser is retiring after 42 years of service. A retirement party is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, January 17 at the RCB Bank at 221 SE 1st St.

Ron started his banking career in 1977 at the American Bank of Pryor, which became the Bank of Oklahoma until it merged with RCB Bank in 1997.

“Ron has played an integral part in the growth of RCB Bank,” said President and CEO Roger Mosier. “Throughout his career, he has always treated customers and peers with respect and provided great customer service.”

A well-known face in the community, Reiser has been involved with Pryor School Board, Oklahoma Baptist University Board of Trustees, Hillcrest Pryor Hospital Board, Boys and Girls Club of Green Country, First Baptist Church and Life Fellowship Church.

“Pryor is an accepting, embracing and supportive community,” Reiser said. “They took my family and I in and made us feel at home. Our girls were both born and raised here and we all feel very blessed to have Pryor as our home community.”

Tim Cutsinger, chief lending officer and senior executive vice president, RCB Bank, praises Ron’s ability to bring the best out of employees.

“I have worked with Ron since 1996,” he said. “He is one of the best mentors and teachers in our organization. His influence and leadership will be greatly missed by all of us.”

Reiser said his business philosophy is simple, “Being servant-minded, honest, approachable and taking the time to invest in people are principles we should all embrace. Most importantly, a self-second attitude is important when trying to make those around you successful. I also strive to live my personal life this way.”

Ron plans to enjoy retirement alongside his wife, daughters, sons-in-law and three grandchildren. He is also looking forward to more time for gardening, traveling and fishing.

WINFIELD, Kan. – RCB Bank loan officer Kent Crain of Winfield has completed the 2019 Principles of Commercial Lending School (PCLS).

“There’s more to lending than analyzing the data,” said Crain. “You’ve got to know and understand your customers and your customer’s business. What I found most useful in the training was the focus on asking my customers better questions.”

“Completion of the PCLS really allows me to focus on the needs of my customers and how to best structure the credit surrounding those needs,” he said.

PCLS is a program of The Schools of Banking, Inc., a non-profit corporation that provides occupational education for bankers. It is jointly owned by the Kansas and Nebraska Bankers Associations and has educated over 20,000 bankers from 27 states.
