“At HomeStreet Bank, our team has a steadfast commitment to three simple yet meaningful principles – do the right thing for our customer, take great care of employees, and be a good corporate citizen,” said Mark K. Mason, President, CEO, and Chairman of HomeStreet Bank.
“I’m very proud of the team and believe we’re a top performing bank because of the collective hard work, dedication, and strong culture we have. We focus on getting better, not just bigger. Our customers know us for the relationships we build together and for our involvement in the communities where we work. How large a bank gets should be limited by its ability to maintain a customer-centric culture and it’s because of this, we continue to experience success,” he added.
