Andy Meisner, CEO, Community Unity Bank
Locally Owned Banks

Community Unity Bank (CUB) is a home-grown, FDIC-insured community bank in Oakland County, Michigan.

The story of CUB begins when former Oakland County Treasurer, CUB Co-Founder and CEO, Andy Meisner, noticed fewer and fewer locally owned banks due to industry consolidation. Combined with the lack of personal service and empathy he witnessed from the big banks when dealing with small local businesses during the Great Recession and COVID, Andy saw an opportunity to continue serving the people of Oakland Country, and Community Unity Bank was born.

CUB was formed by bringing together entrepreneurs from around Oakland County with diverse backgrounds to meet a growing need for small business lending. As business owners and executives, we know that access to capital means everything, and CUB was started to meet that need, lending during up cycles and down cycles.
