Core Values


Passionate team members are spirited and engaged, have opinions and share them, are enthusiastic about their job and the Bank, and they care about their coworkers.

The Hardest Job You’ll Ever Love

Working at a fast-growing entrepreneurial company isn’t always easy, but it’s very rewarding. Successful team members are able to adapt to changing demands, they are clear under pressure, they are fast and responsive, and they are up to the challenge.

Humble Yet Confident

We look for team members who are not only confident and competent, but also have humility. These individuals display strength under control, they are assured but able to listen to others, they seek no personal glory, and they share credit with their team members.

Do What’s Best

Doing what’s best means consistently finding the right balance between what’s best for the Bank and the client, having loyalty and taking ownership, representing the Bank well, and looking beyond your own job to do more.

Relationship Focused

As a community bank, relationships are essential. We need team members who can communicate directly, who work to build positive client and coworker relationships, who demonstrate respect and trust in their relationships, and have uncompromised integrity.

Results Matter

We are a competitive organization that keeps score and cares about results. Successful team members take ownership of their work, they are accountable for their commitments, they are driven to be successful and they don’t settle for mediocrity.

Let’s hear from Employees!

Jennifer Villemure

“Coming from big banks and being a number, to joining Level One and the President of the Bank knowing my dog’s name, is unbelievable! Having your voice and opinions heard and they actually matter and make a difference to the big picture of the Bank is another great feature of working for a community bank. ”
-Jennifer Villemure, Manager - Portfolio Loan Officers​

Mike Abraham

“Level One is a great place to work for many reasons.  Senior management really recognizes talent, and they like to promote that talent.  At a larger institution, you may be overlooked because you could just be a number.  But here, that’s not the case.”
- Mike Abraham, Senior Vice President, Credit Officer

Brad Donnelly

Teamwork, relationships and our access to all of the decision makers is what sets us apart. We help make a difference in peoples’ lives and promote a work-life balance for everyone lucky enough to be part of our family. Level One is lean enough to maneuver quickly and adapt to economic conditions without a lot of red tape, but large enough to provide the support needed for growth and continued success for our customers, local communities and all of our employees.”
