Celebrating 100 Years of Service

To our Customers, our Communities, our Partners and our Employees. Over the past 100 years, we’ve built our business by building enduring relationships rooted in personalized service, providing unique value, and being a partner you can count on. For over half that time, we’ve been led by the formidable Phyllis Papani Godwin, a legend in the industry and the driving force behind our appetite for innovation, creating opportunity, and unmatched customer service.

Today, our aim is the same as it’s ever been — to keep pressing forward and providing new possibilities for the people, partners, and communities we serve.
