"Their banker sat me down and explained how rewarding it is to help people from your own community with lending and investing.

Heritage Bank knew Neal would be a good fit as soon as they learned about the Make A Difference Award another bank had given him for going above and beyond. His customer was returning to the area after a move he quickly regretted. Disabled with virtually no family or support network, the customer was vulnerable and in need of some extra consideration until he got back on his feet. Luckily, Neal was his banker.

While some bankers measure success by production, Neal measures success by the lives he has changed for the better.

Ask Michelle what she does for a living, and she’ll tell you she’s a part-time cattle farmer and an “accidental banker.” Years ago, she was a new college graduate opening an account at a local bank when a personal banker offered to forward her resume to the bank’s recruiter. Today, she can’t imagine not being a banker. And neither can her customers.

“A lovely couple I worked with in a different community tracked me to Heritage Bank. They said they wanted to work with me even if it meant switching banks.”

Local community theater fans sometimes recognize Darin from his comedic roles in local productions, but his most loyal fans are the customers familiar with his banking talent. Some of his neighbors know him as DJ Hartbeatz whose mobile DJ business infuses life into local parties, but Darin’s bank customers appreciate the impact of his banking counsel on their financial lives.

It’s not every day you meet a banker who can reprise his favorite theatrical role on request, speak knowledgeably about the current hip hop and pop scenes, or calculate your anticipated interest savings over the next 15 years by repricing your mortgage loan. Then again, a community banker should be versatile.

“A member of my husband’s Business Network Inc. group had a teller opening and thought banking would be a great fit for me,” said Tanya. “As it turns out, I do love developing relationships with my customers to help them achieve their financial goals.”

While working for a mega regional bank, Tanya heard stories about how Heritage Bank went above and beyond for customers and employees. She also noticed the bank’s commitment to community was hands-on and genuine. Now that she’s joined Heritage Bank, Tanya realizes how hungry she was to connect more deeply with her community, to be empowered to put her customers’ needs first and to feel as appreciated for her commitment to the customer as for the deposits and loans she generates for the bank.

When she isn’t helping her long-time customers and building new relationships, Tanya enjoys hiking with her dogs and exploring new vistas on family vacations.

Then the bank was sold and emphasis on community and customers suffered. When Heritage Bank bought the lot next door to her branch and broke ground, Paula thought it might be a sign.

Florence, KY 41042

Phone: (859) 445-3591



David loves to cook and entertain, so an open concept kitchen is a must for any house his family calls home. He is a graduate of Northern Kentucky University and has honed his mortgage lending expertise over 15 years in the industry. To say David knows the lay of the land is an understatement. There are few neighborhood real estate scenes in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky unfamiliar to David. But what sets him apart is his connection to his customers. He not only knows them by name, he knows their dogs’ names by closing.

First-time homebuyers, empty nesters and buyers in the market for their dream home all appreciate David’s thorough knowledge of the home financing process as well as his knack for infusing humor and excitement into what could otherwise be a nerve-wracking experience. David is also a champion for new products to better serve our local market. Over a few months, David helped develop mortgage products for specific unmet needs at opposite ends of the market – buyers whose credit disqualified them from conventional lending products and buyers who needed a jumbo loan in order to finance a luxury home. Providing customers options goes beyond presenting what’s currently possible.
