Arlyce Cleveland, Ltd.'s #STRONG21
A Mission to Help Businesses Thrive
Arlyce Cleveland began her certified public accounting and business management firm with the vision to educate and train business owners on how to achieve their financial goals. After noticing that business owners reached obstacles when they failed to plan ahead financially, Arlyce made it her mission to keep entrepreneurs from making this mistake.
The Village Bank Difference
In 1994, Arlyce Cleveland was searching for the perfect location for her firm, Arlyce Cleveland, Ltd. Having known Don Kveton, CEO of Village Bank, for quite some time, the CPA began renting from him. The new location was in the same building that Village Bank’s Blaine branch operates. The accounting firm owner soon became a Village Bank customer, too, and experienced the exceptional customer service Village Bank has to offer.
She feels that Village Bank is different from other banks. They aren’t a big box bank. Village Bank puts customers and clients needs ahead and are tremendous at being there for the customer. Arlyce feels that Village Bank is there to hold their customer’s hands and make the impossible possible. After experiencing such phenomenal service at the community bank, Arlyce began referring her own customers to Village Bank so they could have a bank there to help their own companies blossom.
Seeing Eye to Eye
In 2005, Arlyce found another small business owner that would provide value to her customers. Many of her clients needed help when times were tough. Arlyce saw people lose their properties and homes and decided that it was time to provide debt reconciliation services. It was at this time that she met Todd Rooker, Owner of Rooker Financial Consulting. He was as dedicated to providing debt reconciliation services as she was. Together they worked with distressed clients to help them dig their way out and begin dreaming again.
A Banker a Step Above All Others
Arlyce Cleveland knows that having a trust driven relationship with a community banker is part of the equation for business success. The entrepreneur is thankful that Village Bank brought Kraig Kliber on board and feels that her banker has been amazing. “It has been amazing working with Kraig. He is very much attention to detail. He’s responsive. He takes care of the situation and goes above and beyond what traditional bankers do.” Arlyce is sure that Kraig will take care of all situations that may arise. If he can’t find the answer to your question, he will find someone who has it.
