CBANC, the biggest verified professional network for U.S. commercial banking institutions – and the professionals that run and work for them – announced the launch of its new platform this week. The CBANC Marketplace will host data and information on 1,000 products from more than 450 companies – all designed to meet the unique needs of small banks and credit unions.
“Over the past 10 years, CBANC has been a place for all financial professionals to connect and discover the information they need to succeed,” CBANC CEO Tom Ferries said. “Today, the speed of technological innovation is outpacing awareness, and community banks and credit unions need a place to discover what’s available for them and feel confident in their decisions.”
The CBANC Marketplace gives companies the ability to have their solutions accessed by a verified audience of community banking and credit union professionals. Both the CBANC Community and Marketplace are free for all employees of U.S. financial institutions, and there is no cost for fintechs and other companies that want to add their product or solution.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, and founded in 2009, CBANC benefits from the collective wisdom of more than 8,600 financial institutions with a combined total of more than $22 trillion in assets. The CBANC Community consists of 65,000 verified financial professionals representing more than 80% of all financial institutions in the United States. A unique opportunity to connect and collaborate with peers in the industry who are innovating in a wide range of technologies from AI to the blockchain to cryptocurrencies, the CBANC Network earned a spot on the 2020 Inc 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. Ferries, who took over at CEO days before the Inc 5000 announcement, credited CBANC’s three-year revenue growth of more than 6.5x for helping the organization secure the listing.
“Our strong revenue growth is a testament to the value we deliver to our Members and Partners,” Ferries said. “Look for new and exciting product launches later this year to continue our mission of helping our Members preserve the diversity of the American banking system.”
