Because Community Banking Matters

We believe in the power of community banking and the unique role it plays in our local, state, and national economic systems.

For over 30 years, The Emmerich Group has guided hundreds of ambitious banks just like yours to elite performance, long-term success, and sustainability than any other industry advisor.

As one industry consultant said “The problem with The Emmerich Group is that their results are SO GOOD, nobody believes them!

Meet Roxanne Emmerich

Roxanne’s Farming Roots

Your community bank matters. TEG founder and CEO Roxanne Emmerich understood this from a young age. Growing up on a Wisconsin dairy farm, milking cows and plowing fields, she saw neighbors and family friends lose their farms to foreclosure to big national banks.

She recognized early on that community banks are the key to strong communities and that when a community bank leaves, small businesses and jobs go with it.

Someone Who’s Been Where You Are

You want deep experience. After earning her undergraduate degree in agricultural business, Roxanne began her career in banking. As her career evolved, she ran a de novo bank that set records in terms of growth and profitability, then went on to be a lead investor and founder of two banks. Each step she has taken had been grounded in one fundamental belief: your community will benefit with a strong community bank that understands how to help the community grow and prosper.

Roxanne Emmerich has been seen on Fox Business, CBS, and CNN and has been interviewed for over 900 radio shows and podcasts. She is the New York Times, #1 Amazon, Businessweek, and international best-selling author of Thank God It’s Monday!®. Her latest book, The Breakthrough Banking Blueprint, is 5-star rated on Amazon.

A Community Banking Team Like No Other

Unlike any other advisor, The Emmerich Group works exclusively at the intersection of strategy, culture, marketing, and sales process to help community banks.

You deserve the very best and as the saying goes, “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.” Stated simply, no industry advisor has helped more banks get to top-of-peer status (and stay there) than we have. And we are here for YOU.

Are you ready to become a TOP 5 PERCENTER™?

“We were able to capture a floating rate in a rising rate environment. That was just as big a deal as getting the $10 million loan. Since then, interest rates have gone up 100 basis points. It’s the only floating rate that company has. We were able to negotiate that by making sure we stuck to your sales process and held tight…and it worked.”

“We increased net interest margin from the 27th to 82nd percentile in the time we have been working with you. We drew the line in the sand about matching rates—that was huge. We drove our deposit costs down. I don’t think we could have come out of those tough couple of years without The Emmerich Group.
