Chat with the Chairman

One of Blackhawk Bank's core values is ‘to communicate with others in ways that ensure mutual understanding.' 

Every associate at Blackhawk Bank has been encouraged to give the gift of feedback - to each other, to his or her supervisor and to me. Open and honest communication is essential to the success of any relationship. 

I invite you to give me the gift of feedback. Perhaps you have a comment about an experience you had at the Bank or an observation you've made - good, or not! Perhaps you'd like to offer a suggestion or share an idea. 

Whatever the case may be, I want you to know that I'm available. I'll listen and respond. Send me an email at I look forward to hearing from you. 


Rick Bastian
Chairman & CEO
