Clear Mountain Bank Named Best Bank in West Virginia by Newsweek

Posted on: November 22nd, 2021

Clear Mountain Bank has been named to Newsweek magazine’s ranking of America’s Best Banks 2022 as the Best Small Bank in West Virginia. The ranking recognizes those financial institutions that best serve their customers’ needs.

“Clear Mountain Bank is proud to have been named one of America’s Best Banks by Newsweek magazine,” said David M. Thomas, president and CEO. “As a locally owned and managed community bank, Clear Mountain Bank offers quick, local decisions for personal and business loans. We offer full digital banking capabilities and the technology to support that. Although we are classified as a small bank, we offer a robust array of modern banking technology platforms.”

Newsweek partnered with LendingTree, the online marketplace and comparison site for financial services, to create the annual Best Banks rankings. They assessed thousands of FDIC-insured financial institutions in the United States based on more than 50 different factors to land on best-in-class options in 26 different categories. Factors assessed included the overall health of the bank, account and loan options, interest rate offerings, fees, customer service performance and features, digital and branch presence, and mobile app scores.

Clear Mountain Bank is a locally owned and managed community bank that has been serving North Central West Virginia and western Maryland for more than 125 years. The bank provides a comprehensive array of digital and traditional banking products and services to meet the needs of its personal, business, commercial, mortgage and financial planning customers.

The bank was recently named as one of the nation’s 2021 Best Banks to Work For by American Banker and Best Companies Group for the second year. Additional information about Clear Mountain Bank is available at
