A statement from Daniel J. Schrider, President and CEO of Sandy Spring Bank, regarding Forbes recognition

September 27, 2016

In banking, we talk a lot about assets – and by assets we typically mean tangible items that have a fixed financial value. But our most valuable asset is not one that’s easily quantifiable on a balance sheet, and it’s not something that can be bought and sold. It’s trust – and it has to be earned through years of honest, dependable and remarkable service.

That’s why I’m especially proud that Sandy Spring Bancorp, the holding company for Sandy Spring Bank, was recognized by Forbes magazine once again as one of the 50 Most Trustworthy Financial Companies in America. This is the 11th consecutive year that we have earned this high designation, which is based on a review by Forbes and an independent research company of nearly 700 publicly-traded companies with market caps of $250 million or more.

The trust that we have earned has been built on our commitment to always put our clients first. It’s a true recognition of the people, culture and values that differentiate Sandy Spring Bank in a highly competitive market. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients, community and shareholders, and I am proud of what our employees have accomplished on their behalf.
