Over the course of Standard Bank’s 100th anniversary and Customer Appreciation Days, Standard Bank’s Hyndman office honored their oldest customer, who is also turning 100 this coming September. John Lehman, lifelong resident of Hyndman, was joined by his sons Robert Lehman and Gary Lehman and his daughter Janet Willis for a small cake reception in his honor.

Standard Bank is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and even though Tim hasn’t been there quite that long, he’s working to ensure that the bank appropriately celebrates this important milestone in its history. They kicked off the celebration on February 19th, with each community banking office (CBO) hosting a “party” for its customers, serving cake and refreshments. The Hyndman office decided to take advantage of the opportunity to honor their “oldest” customer. John Lehman, lifelong resident of Hyndman, was joined by his sons Robert and Gary Lehman and his daughter Janet Willis at the CBO for a small cake reception in his honor. This is just one example of how important the clients are at Standard Bank, and the relationships that the community bank has built with them.
Like most community banks, Standard Bank owes its success and longevity to the community, so as part of their year-long celebration, the associates are taking the opportunity to give back. The first of these community-centered opportunities is focused on volunteering. Standard Bank is encouraging its 100-plus associates to give a minimum of one hour of service back to their community. This will result in at least 100 hours of community service – with the hope that it could total as much as 1,000 hours. Associates are given time off work to support a volunteer project, whether it is one hour or half a day. “The associates have really become involved in this effort. Some CBOs have chosen one organization to devote all of their time to, accomplishing something bigger than any one person could do alone,” says Vanessa Saxton, marketing manager for Standard Bank.
