We are all dealing with the dynamic and challenging events triggered by the coronavirus pandemic. As a friend so very eloquently stated, “This is a defining life moment, and when you look back years from now, you’ll remember how you responded. How you contributed to solutions”.
When we look back, we want Platinum to be remembered as the resourceful, creative, collaborative and candid bank when businesses needed it most. We understand there will be stress in all businesses and there is no playbook for what we are all dealing with. Here is what we do know:
- The 30 million small businesses in the USA are the backbone of our economy and employ nearly 60 million people.
- Relationships matter and some of the strongest relationships are forged in times of stress. Platinum is in a strong position to help.
- In tough times, new opportunities present themselves that may not otherwise be seen.
- We will get through these times together with stronger, more agile and smarter organizations.
We look forward to servicing the needs of small businesses in 2020 and beyond.
