As a 30 year administrator with the University of St. Thomas College of Business, I have been aware for many years of Roxanne Emmerich's excellent national reputation as a premier consultant, teacher, advocate and advisor to the finance and banking industry.  Her most recent book, Thank God It's Monday!®, provides a blueprint for powerful and positive changes in organizational culture that lead to major improvements in employee and customer satisfaction, which, in turn, lead to major improvements in the bottom line for any organization.

George E. Williams
Director of Operations and Administrative Services

Before Roxanne our bank had lost direction. We knew we needed deposit growth and a culture shift. Since joining The Emmerich Group®, our deposits are up 22%, our customer satisfaction rating is 9.90 out of 10, and we are experiencing our most profitable year on record. This is the best investment we’ve ever made.

Roxanne’s no nonsense business approach, outstanding communication and leadership skills, and dedicated work ethic have undoubtedly made her one of most noted authors and inspirational business speakers in the country. Her book Thank God It’s Monday!® epitomizes the very essence of these qualities and truly inspires a culture of positive change in the workplace.

Before we worked with the Thank God It’s Monday!® system, we had tried many consultants and training programs with little or no improvement. Within 30 days of our Kick-Butt Kick-Off®, we grew more than we had in the previous 10 years combined! The growth of deposits and loans can only be described as a miracle and the profits were up 44%, and profits and ongoing growth have soared from there. The system keeps taking us further. When other banks in our area asked us how we did it and I tell them, they say, No, really? Nobody believes this was really possible.

Patti W. Steele
First Volunteer Bank

Our bank was a lazy underperformer until we discovered the TGIM process. Since our kick off, we’ve doubled in size and profits in just a few short years! The most important transformation though is that our people now expect to have a ball and to create success for themselves and the bank.

— Archie R. McDonnell, Jr.
Citizens National Bank

In less than two years of using the Thank God It’s Monday!® approach, we not only met EVERY goal in ALL of our branches, but we exceeded many of our goals by 100 percent! Our entire organization acts like a team! I can’t imagine any CEO who wouldn’t want this for their organization.

— Chad L. Hoffman

I’ve always said that if our competitors got a hold of Roxanne’s information we’d be in trouble.  Fortunately, we found her first.  Living this book will energize and engage your staff.  Roxanne’s systems work—especially during times like these.        

Al Tubbs
 CEO, Ohnward Bancshares, Inc.
Past President of American Bankers Association

We’ve moved from 3.3 services per household to 4.3 in 30 months. Loan growth was up $100 million in less than five months during the heart of a recession while we improved loan quality. Return on equity increased from 7.18% to 10.44% in a year. Net interest margin increased from 3.63% to 3.95% in a year with two major building projects factored in. And we had a breakthrough in spirit. Orientation is a challenge because we don’t want people deviating from the system The Emmerich Group® taught us. The system works and we follow the system. People want to tweak it their way and we say, ‘No, don’t tweak it.’

— Jim Marcuccilli
STAR Financial

We paid for the full three-year program in the first month with a fee from a single client by following the new sales process we learned. We then went on to replicate those same results over and over again. But the real miracle is the transformation in our workplace culture.

— J.J. Blake
Peoples State Bank

Since working with The Emmerich Group®, we have reduced our turnover from 40% down to 2%.

— Peter Morrison
Elgin State Bank

We grew 35% annualized in the first month after never growing more than 2 percent per year for a decade. Our profits went up 44% in a year! We just hit record quarter again.

— P. Steele

First Volunteer Bank
Chattanooga, TN

First quarter income is up over 400% from last year. And our culture continues to ROCK, while still being a work in progress.

— M. Cederlind
Senior Vice President
Mission Valley Bank
Sun Valley, CA

We are hitting every goal out of the water, employees bring in references, we have employees asking people to be customers, 74% of our people got references. We were named Small Business of the Year by Union County. Our commercial deposits have grown and we secured every prospect but one—98 percent of those we called on came to us. Return on assets blew us away especially with all the growth. We had a $30 million growth in first quarter when only a $220 million bank is unbelievable.

In less than two years of using the Thank God It’s Monday!® approach, we not only met EVERY goal in ALL of our branches, but we exceeded many of our goals by 100 percent! Our entire organization acts like a team! I can’t imagine any CEO who wouldn’t want this for their organization.

We raised almost $1.0 million in a matter of a few hours in Core Deposits (Not CD’s, no special rates, etc.) This came from an inspired, excited workforce that has seen the light and is spreading the gospel to our communities. And the communities are responding.

— D. Pierce
Louisville, KY

We were just named number one community bank in south Florida, and named 2008 Fort Lauderdale Small Business of the Year. We grew from $168,935,564 when we started working with you eight months ago to $184,524,236 last month!

— G. Martin
American National Bank
Oakland Park, FL

We have seen a large increase in our core deposits, compared to this time last year, we’re seeing 20 percent growth range, our loans are up from this time last year. Our services per household increased every month for two years which is a leading indicator of future profitability and growth; we grew about 33%. In 2005, our income was 9.3 million and for year end of 2008, we were at $12.7 million—a 33.6% growth since we started the program.

— T. Wright
STAR Financial
Anderson, IN

Our deposit balance growth over the last few months has been very good without paying up for the deposits, by offering value to our new and existing customers. Our deposit balance at the end of October in 2008 was $214.0 million; by the end of April this year our deposit balance had grown to $231.0 million. One of the things we are most proud of is that even with the challenging times we have been able to maintain (and grow slightly) a very solid net interest margin of 3.90%.


— B. Mayberry
Vice President-Retail Banking
Liberty Bank
Alton, IL

We just finished our very best year EVER in 2008. We have experienced double digit growth year after year, we’re at our annual deposit growth today already for the year. We experienced significant deposit growth during this time when consumers were losing faith with the banking community.
