A Message From Our President and CEO

At Sandy Spring Bank, our company is committed to five core principles:

  • Be responsive in every way
  • Always take the extra step
  • Take the long view
  • Make it our own
  • Always do what is right

These principles guide how we do business and serve our community. As a result, these principles are also central to our approach to Corporate Responsibility.

For example, we partner with local nonprofits to respond to the specific needs of the communities we serve. Since we have a long-term view of our company, we invest in professional development and employee engagement opportunities so people can grow their careers at Sandy Spring Bank. Additionally, in 2022 we launched an employee-driven effort to develop a corporate Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Plan that is truly our own and reflects what matters to our employees. These are just a few of the ways we live out our principles. Enclosed, you will find many other examples of our remarkable employees in action for the betterment of our clients, communities, shareholders, the environment and our workplace.

Now in our third year of reporting, we are pleased to cement further a precedent for transparency and accountability in this space. We appreciate your interest in Sandy Spring Bank and for taking the time to explore our work.
