Harvey Automotive

"I purchased the Harvey Automotive Group in 2002 from my father in law and Macatawa Bank has been with me the whole time and provided the financing that we've needed then and over the years. Macatawa Bank is unlike any other bank that I've ever experienced in my working career or personal career. Good people attract good people and that's what Macatawa has done over the years. They've attracted the best people in the banking industry to be part of Macatawa Bank. They're very people oriented. They treat people like you want to be treated. They offer suggestions, they offer help. They want to do business with you. It's a different breed of banker.”

"We wanted a partner that was big enough that we could be confident in, but yet small enough where the relationship mattered. Macatawa bank was able to take the time with us and find a solution that would be a good option. Macatawa Bank has been there every step of the way and around every corner that we've had to turn. We've had great support. As a company that provides service or is a service business, we try to know what good service looks like and how that operates. And I was impressed that Macatawa Bank valued that as well. They're based right here in West Michigan. And so the people you work with, the dollars you spend are staying here in West Michigan.”

"Our two big services from Macatawa Bank is our 401k and we also recently boarded our HSA program and they've made it so simple for our team members. The team has been fantastic. They take the time to personally invest and meet with each of our team members to help them make sure they're making the best decisions. Macatawa Bank is a great community supporter and I've personally been with Macatawa Bank for a very long time. Our big white hat is serving communities and it's great to partner with a financial institution that sees that same value in communities.”

"Resthaven is local. We serve our community here in Holland and I see that in Macatawa Bank as well. I think that's important, that commitment to the community. 

I think the customer support is just incredible. When I pick up the phone to call somebody, I know I'm going to have a familiar voice on the other side. Likewise, if I go into the local branch, I know I'll see a familiar face as well. That's a real differentiator to me with a community bank and something that I've really come to admire."

Kool Automotive Group

"When you're looking at a bank to use, you want a bank that you can see yourself in. And with Macatawa we've always felt that way. I mean with the relationships, with the size, with the locations, it's really been something that makes it very, very convenient, especially when you have different rooftops and different departments; everything needs something different. And to be able to do all of those things with one bank is fantastic."

Matt Kool


DK Security

"Whether it's a quick question or if it's a bigger issue, we don't want to call a 1-800 number. We want to be able to pick up the phone and talk with our commercial banker, and that's the case with Macatawa Bank. Whenever we need something, they've been there for us."

"They made the process so simple as we expanded, and they have the size to be able to handle our expansion across the state, but they're still the same people that we're dealing with here in Grand Rapids and Holland."

"Looking back, Macatawa Bank's employee's have clearly been the key difference in building our positive relationship. In March of 2002 we made the decision to switch to Macatawa Bank. It ended up being a great business decision. Looking back, Macatawa Bank's employee's have clearly been the key difference in building our positive relationship. Since day one their attentiveness to our changing needs as a customer, and their willingness to familiarize themselves with our business, has made our banking relationship second to none.

"The one main reason I bank with Macatawa is personal service. During the Great Recession, my loan officer was more of a business consultant than anything else. She gave me advice that was difficult to hear, but was exactly what was needed at the time. Money is a commodity, but personal service defines my experience with Macatawa."
