At GFC, we understand that real and lasting accountability, integrity, and trust only happen when the relationship comes first. The essence of its practice consists of focusing on the needs of closely-held, owner managed and middle-market businesses.

Since 1825, KeyBank has been driven by the value that, as a corporate neighbor, it has an important role to play in helping to maintain and strengthen the communities in which it does business. Whether helping small businesses secure loans to purchase needed equipment and create jobs, developing a long-range financial plan for families and individuals or supporting nonprofits by volunteering time and donating money, Key and its employees are dedicated to providing their clients the responsiveness, attention and local decision-making of a small bank backed by the breadth of services of one of the nation’s largest financial institutions.
