Doorway, president of Bauer Financial said, "It gives me great pleasure to announce that there are still banks, like Merchants & Marine Bank, that continue to build a sense of security in this insecure world." M&M Bank has maintained the 5-Star Rating for 68 consecutive quarters qualifying M&M Bank as an "Exceptional Performance Bank," a status earned by 10 or more consecutive years of 5-Star Ratings.


In 2008, US Banker Magazine named Merchants & Marine Bank "One of the Top 200 Community Banks in the country." The following year in 2009, Merchants & Marine Bank was again honored and named "The 65th Best Community Bank in the Nation." There are nearly 10,000 community banks throughout the United States.
