Bill Clinton Recognises Southern Bancorp And GABV

The October GABV North American Chapter meeting was recently hosted by member, Southern Bancorp in Arkansas (USA). Afterwards, a special letter was received acknowledging the work of GABV members and Southern Bancorp in building the #BankingOnValues movement. Here’s what former US President, Bill Clinton, had to say…

‘Since 2009, GABV has upheld its mission to leverage the power of finance to create positive and measurable impact in communities around the world. With steadfast dedication to values-based banking, the GABV network has shown that investment and entrepreneurship are powerful tools for improving the lives of others, and I commend member banks for focusing not solely on their bottom lines, but also on the long term benefits of the products and services they provide.

Six years ago in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative, GABV committed $2 billion to support sustainable banks, and since then I’ve been thrilled to see the networks expand and make available greater capital for development efforts across the globe. Our partnership has proven that one of the best ways to achieve shared prosperity is through capitalism that is inclusive and fair.

DarrinWilliams2013-smallI want to thank my friend, Darrin Williams, for his outstanding leadership at Southern Bancorp, as well as for his many years of service to the people of Arkansas. Thanks also to Peter Blom, Chairman of the GABV Board, and Candace Franks, Arkansas State Banking Commissioner, for their continued conviction that everyone deserves an opportunity to succeed and to build a better future for their community and family…’
