In January the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce selected Castle Rock Bank to receive its first ever Business of the Month honor.
Following are excerpts from the Chamber's announcement:
"The Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its first recipient for Business of the Month recognition. Some of the essential criteria for being recognized are the length of time a business has supported the Chamber – ten consecutive years or longer - through its membership, participation and sponsorship.
"Castle Rock Bank has been a stalwart supporter of the Chamber since 1983, the same year Tom Miller moved from La Junta where he was heavily involved with that chamber. Mr. Miller, a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado, has been responsible for the successful management of Castle Rock Bank for the past 26 years, contributing in immeasurable ways to this Chamber and the community.
"In 1988, Tom also founded what is now known as the Castle Rock Chamber Ambassadors. Originally called the Chamber Rockers, this group remains an essential part of Chamber activity; composed of business owners who volunteer their time mentoring new business members and serving in various capacities for the Chamber.
"Tom, CEO and Chairman of Castle Rock Bank since 2001, said he believes Castle Rock Bank has been successful partly because of its involvement in the community such as hosting the Taste of Castle Rock, the pancake breakfast at the Douglas County Fair, participating in the 4-H Junior Livestock Sale and serving as a major sponsor of Starlighting, a favorite community tradition organized by the Chamber.
"He said the bank has also been successful because it caters to the needs of local residents with a wide range of banking services delivered by a professional and courteous staff.
That sums up why Castle Rock Bank, its leadership and staff have earned recognition as an outstanding business in Castle Rock."
