RCB Bank Makes Dreams Possible

The value of relationship banking.

John Price is a tire guy. He’s been hauling, stacking, setting and buying tires since 1988 when he joined his brother at a tire facility in Tulsa. He later moved north to work for a local tire shop in Claremore, but he always wanted to own his own shop.

After 30 years in the business, an opportunity presented itself. A tire shop down the road was looking to sell. The owner hoped to sell his family business to someone who would keep it a mom-and-pop tire shop.

“When I had the idea to buy, I went to Matt [Mason, market president, RCB Bank] to bounce my idea off of him,” John said.  “I wanted to know if it was even possible. Matt helped me be realistic and talk through potential complications.”

“My job as John’s banker is to help him read between the lines of what he wants and needs in order to mitigate risk and identify the unknowns,” Matt said. “I ask the questions he may not have even considered so he can create a business plan that covers as many variables as possible.”

RCB Bank’s core values are relationship, community and boldness.

“Building relationships and knowing my customers play a big part in helping me help them,” said Matt. “A name and a story are better than a number in the system. It builds integrity, trust and comfortability.”

“Matt never made me feel like I was asking a dumb question,” John added. “He listened and we had an open and honest discussion about what I needed and how I was going to get there. Matt more or less provided me with what the bank needed to move forward.”

Matt calls it helping people get bankable.

“Some people come in with an idea, but they may not have the liquidity or cash flow to qualify for the financing they need,” he said. “It may not mean they don’t have a good business plan or the potential, so I work with them to show the path to get them there.”

Helping the community thrive has been the driving force behind RCB Bank since opening day in 1936 when founder L.S. Robson brought together a team of local citizens to finance the Bank so it could help local citizens keep their farms afloat and their businesses operating during the Great Depression. They made bold moves to lend money because they knew a person’s character, not just their account balance, was worth investing in.

Banking has more rules and red tape than it did 80 years ago, but building a relationship still plays a big part in banking.

“It doesn’t just help us, it helps our customers, too,” said Matt. “If a customer knows us, they’re more likely to come and ask questions, like John when he had the idea to open a shop. He was not sure it was possible and instead of talking himself out of it through fear or reservation, he came and talked to me. And we were able to help make his dream attainable.”

Today, John Price is the proud owner of Price 66 Tire & Auto in Claremore on old Route 66 at 1304 N. J.M. Davis Boulevard.

John and Matt’s relationship did not end after the loan was complete. Matt checked in often in the beginning to make sure John was doing okay. Now, the two catch up whenever they run into each other in the community, at the shop or at the bank.

“Matt makes himself available,” John said. “I trust him, knowing he cares about my success.”

“Our success is measured by the success of our customers,” Matt said. “If we help you reach your financial goals then we’ve done our job. Our employees are easy to get to know. We want you to feel comfortable discussing your business and banking matters with us, so I invite you to stop by and get to know us.”

Marilyn Hobbs of Pryor Retires From RCB Bank

Pryor, Oklahoma Marilyn Hobbs, RCB Bank customer service representative and long-time employee, retires at the end of this year. Please join us as we celebrate her 22 years of service from 9-11 a.m. Friday, December 27 at RCB Bank’s Pryor downtown location, 222 SE First St.

Hobbs joined RCB Bank as a part-time teller in 1997 and has worked or assisted in nearly every department over the years. In 2000, she was promoted to new accounts, where she still serves today.

“Since I have worked this department so long, I was appointed as new account mentor to train others and was a go-to person for IRA questions from other branches,” Hobbs said.

She recalls the many changes over the years, from printing signature cards and CDs on the Swintec typewriter, “which jammed every time you tried to print,” to now doing most everything on an iPad.

She has made many friends with employees and customers, stating, “This is the downfall of retirement, not being able to keep up with everyone.”

In retirement, Hobbs is looking forward to sleeping in a little later, but admits after so many years her body clock says wake up at 6:45 a.m.

“I am planning to get my house organized, cook my husband some meals and spend time in my sewing room on the new machine I recently purchased.”

She is also planning to do some traveling to National Parks with her husband, Harold. Their first trip is to California Sequoia National Park and then to Oregon to visit family. She is also looking forward to spending more time with her eight grandchildren, ranging in ages 5-21.

Her parting wisdom: “Let your attitude be of Christ today. Be positive, not moody; be joyful, not cantankerous; be encouraging, not negative. Display Him today, don’t make it be about yourself.”

RCB Bank Pays It Forward

RCB Bank donates to the Cowley County Community Health Center Pay-It-Forward Fund.

Just ahead of the holiday season, RCB Bank this week generously donated $1,500 to the Community Health Center in Cowley County’s Pay-It-Forward Fund.

The purpose of this internal fund is to ensure that medically underserved patients receive quality health care by bridging relatively small cost-gap disparities. The continual disbursement of this fund supports payment of underserved patient’s medical care costs such as life-saving drugs. These disparities, although minor in cost, many times have consequential impacts on the health outcomes of an underserved patient. This fund is only for the benefit of those whom make the health center their medical home. Medically underserved is defined as a patient who is uninsured or underinsured and/or whose annual income is less than 200% of the current federal poverty level.

Individuals and groups may contribute to the Pay-It-Forward Fund by visiting or mailing donations to the Community Health Center in Cowley County at 221 W. 8th Avenue, Winfield, Kansas, 67156. You should earmark your gifts towards this effort by noting “Pay-It-Forward” in the memo. The health center, through the Legacy Regional Community Foundation, also maintains an endowed fund for specialty care.

RCB Bank Supports Winfield Food Pantry

More than 200 pounds of peanut butter collected & donated by RCB Bank officers and employees.

RCB Bank Food Pantry Donation 11.2019

RCB Bank officers and employees have been busy collecting jars of peanut butter! They recently donated more than 200 pounds of peanut butter to the Winfield Food Pantry and Joseph’s Storehouse, along with a check for $2,000.

RCB Bank’s core values are relationships, community and boldness and during the months of October and November, employees were challenged to collect 100 pounds of peanut for the Food Pantry. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the U.S., 1 in 9 people worldwide live with chronic hunger.  In the U.S. alone, 1 in 7 people do not have enough to eat. RCB Bank Market President Gregg Conklin wasn’t surprised when employees crushed the goal.

“RCB Bank employees care deeply about the communities they live in,” Conklin said. “When it comes to supporting others, be it the Winfield Pantry, Joseph’s Storehouse, CASA or local schools, RCB Bank employees are some of the most generous with their time, talents and treasures.”

Why did we donate peanut butter?

“So many of us love peanut butter for its great taste, nutrition or just for the wonderful childhood memories we get when we bite into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich,” Conklin responded. “Many do not realize that peanut butter helps make ends meet for thousands of people who use food banks in the United States, and that peanut butter is also part of life-saving treatment for malnourished children. RCB Bank is proud to support community organizations like the Food Pantry.”
