Grubb Named Lender of the Year

September 25, 2017

David Grubb, Market President at The Bank of Tioga, received the Lender of the Year Award at the 2017 Williston Economic Development / Small Business Development Center Awards and Appreciation Banquet on Thursday, August 31, 2017.

Long-time resident of Tioga, Grubb has over 35 years of service with The Bank of Tioga, and currently serves as the market president and is a member of the bank’s board of directors.

“I accepted the reward on behalf of all of our employees at both locations. We are blessed with really great employees who excel on the job and also understand the importance of volunteering their time and talent in the communities in which we operate which is critically important to keep our communities vibrant and growing,” explained Grubb. “We have seen many signs of visible progress and new business start-ups or expansions recently in both Tioga and Crosby and have been fortunate to play a role with donations or financing and on several occasions, both. We hope to build on that going forward.”

The emotional event was held in conjunction with WEST! the 2017 Williston Economic Summit which was held August 30-31 at the Grand Williston Hotel.

“I was both humbled and surprised to receive such an award,” said Grubb. “To be recognized at the awards in Williston is quite an honor for our community bank in Tioga.”

Also honored that evening were Craig and Rena Helberg, co-owners of Craig's Small Engine Repair named Existing Business of the Year; Dana Johnson, owner of Little Muddy Gifts, named Woman-Owned Business of the Year; and Leisha and Brad Peterson, co-owners of Strike Zone, were named New Business of the Year.
