HomeStreet Named Finalist For ‘Innovative Community Banks Of The Year’ Award

HomeStreet Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of HomeStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ:HMST), announced today that it is a finalist for the Second Annual Innovative Community Banks of the Year award, presented by Western Independent Bankers (WIB) and BDO. Each finalist is selected based on forward-thinking and creative achievements of community banks in three different asset size categories for innovations achieved in 2012.

“These Innovative Community Banks of the Year Awards represent ways in which community banks are paving the way to innovation in community banking,” said Nancy Sheppard, president & CEO of WIB. “The nominated banks and finalists are prime examples of the way in which innovation and service can successfully meet.”

A panel of fourteen industry experts selected the finalists from a pool of nominations in the three asset-size categories. The chair of the Awards Advisory Committee is Mike Soza, Partner at BDO, a professional services firm that includes many community banks as clients. “BDO is very proud to be a co-sponsor of these awards once more,” said Soza. “We recognize the innovative ways these banks are reaching their customers and their communities, and we salute them.”

HomeStreet Bank was one of three finalists in the largest asset category of ‘Over $1 Billion in Assets.’

Profiles of each finalist bank, as well as a list of the judges, are on the WIB website. The winner in each category will be announced on March 24, 2013 at WIB’s Annual Bank Conference for Bank Presidents, Senior Officers and Directors in Kauai, Hawaii.
