Message From Our President

Welcome to North State Bank!Larry Barbour Image

Thank you for choosing to visit North State Bank’s website.  We hope the words that follow will provide a good understanding of our bank and our vision for the future.

North State Bank was created over 20 years ago, with a commitment to remaining independent in order to create and preserve the values we believe are important, as we serve all of our stakeholders. 

It all starts inside the company. Any outstanding company grows from the inside out and not the outside in. As CEO, I fully understand that everything I do is through and with other people. We must continue to enable our people to grow and develop as individuals and as bankers, in order to have the empowerment which keeps bureaucracy and hierarchy from separating us from our customers.

Today, there is a lot of emphasis on technology and how it can serve our customers. The truth is that while technology is the “great enabler,” human interaction rules our lives. It holds the key to our value. The ability of our people to not only communicate, but actually connect with each other and with our customers is vital to acquiring and keeping the relationships which will carry our bank into the future. We will continue to acquire and improve our technology to serve our customers efficiently and quickly. Technology will enable us to establish and keep mutually beneficial banking relationships for many years to come. 

For these and many other reasons, North State Bank is a value-driven organization and strives to use our people, products, and services to improve the lives of those we serve.  We believe such value should not be compromised by the lowest price instead of the best quality.

Thank you for visiting with us.

Very Cordially,
Larry Barbour's Signature

Larry D. Barbour
