Charleston, W.V. – United Bank is proud to announce that it has been named among the top on Newsweek’s 2023 list of America’s Best Banks. This year, the rankings were broken down by state and United was hailed as the winner in West Virginia. The news comes on the heels of United’s recent recognition on Newsweek’s 2022 list of America’s Most Trustworthy Companies, where the Company ranked second as the “Most Trustworthy Company” in the banking category nationwide.
“We are honored to be recognized as our state’s best bank,” said Richard M. Adams, Jr., CEO of United Bankshares, Inc. “No company has been serving West Virginia and its communities longer than United. We are proud that our deep local roots and relationships throughout the Mountain State continue to make United West Virginia’s bank.”
The America’s Best Banks list was designed to help consumers find the financial institution that best serves their needs, particularly in the face of the current economic climate—ones that combine competitive rates, low fees and the services and rewards that suit their lifestyle. Best Bank winners were selected from among 4,800 financial institutions and assessed on more than 30 separate factors, covering the overall health of the bank, customer service performance and features, digital and branch presence, account and loan options, interest rate offerings and fees.
United has grown from a single office bank in Parkersburg, W.V., to one of the most successful regional financial services companies in the nation, with more than $29 billion in assets and nearly 250 locations throughout West Virginia, the Mid-Atlantic and the Southeast. As the Bank executes its growth strategy and enters new markets, United proudly maintains a strong presence in its founding state and creates employment opportunities in the region, where its holding company, United Bankshares, Inc., is the largest publicly traded company in West Virginia, headquartered in the state capital of Charleston.
