A small bank with big bank benefits

Headquartered in Dunn, North Carolina, and founded in 2000, Select Bancorp, Inc., the holding company for Select Bank & Trust, offers a broad range of retail, small business and commercial banking products and services.

Select Bank Leland is one of 19 full-service Select Bank offices throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. While the bank may be small, it has all the benefits of larger banking operations. Some of the bank’s offerings include personal checking and savings, business checking and savings, CDs, IRAs, personal loans, small business and commercial loans and mortgage services.

2018 was a year full of accomplishments for Select Bank, the most successful being the capital raise of nearly $60 million in August 2018. This funding allows the bank to focus on investments as well as to grow in currently served markets and enhance its capital position overall.

Select Bank is deeply involved in the local community, not only through donations and contributions but also through employee involvement. Leland Branch Manager Susan Cruse was named the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce Woman of the Year for 2018 and she serves as the treasurer for the chamber’s board of directors.

“Knowledge, coupled with unwavering integrity and trustworthiness are the keys to my personal success in 29 years of banking,” Cruse says.

Committed to customer service, Select Bank offers convenient banking methods such as online baking, mobile banking and mobile deposits, so customers can bank on their own schedule.

“Successful banks are made of great bankers who are knowledgeable about all areas of their role and industry, project an image of professionalism, confidence, humility and most of all trustworthiness and even during times of constant change can dedicate themselves to serving their customers and improving as bankers,” Cruse says.
