John Buxman, owner of Village Markets in Snowmass, Telluride and Edwards, and also a store in Moab, Utah, was presented with the Donald P. Lloyd Spirit of Independents Award for 2009.

The award is presented to a member retailer who exemplifies the strength of character, mental fortitude and steadfast determination of the company’s founder.

For three consecutive quarters, American National Bank has received the highest rating as a Blue Ribbon Bank from VERIBANC Inc., an independent bank rating firm.

To qualify for the Blue Ribbon status, banks must receive VERIBANC’s highest Green, Three Stars rating, including an evaluation of all six factors federal regulators use in determining the government’s “CAMELS” ratings: capital strength, asset quality, management, earnings, liquidity and sensitivity to market risk. In addition, banks must satisfy additional safety related criteria.

This Blue Ribbon Award is reserved for those highly rated financial institutions that demonstrate exceptional attention to safety, soundness and financial strength, and is the oldest national accolade presented to banks by private sector analysts.

American National Bank is a member of the Sturm Financial Group Inc. Sturm Financial Group consists of 40 community banks located in Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Missouri.
