Clear Mountain Bank has been voted Best Bank in Morgantown for the eighth time since the competition’s inception, and this marks the bank’s seventh consecutive year.

“We are so humbled and honored to once again be voted as Best Bank in Morgantown for eight years,” stated Kim Dobrzynski, Director of Marketing for Clear Mountain Bank. “It truly is a vote of confidence in who we are as a community bank and also who we are to our loyal customers and employees, who are at the heart of everything we do.”

Morgantown magazine started the Best of Morgantown (BOM) competition in 2011 to encourage its readers to recognize and celebrate the excellent dining, shopping, and services that make Morgantown a great place to live. Winners were awarded for the first time in 2012, and the competition has since grown. Nominations are organic, in that Morgantown magazine readers submit nominations and final round votes online and are allowed only 1 vote per device per day.

Morgantown magazine editor Pam Kasey noted that BOM22 is now in its second decade. This year they received nearly 1,700 total nominations in 101 categories. Those nominees received more than 120,000 cumulative votes and were then whittled down to 439 finalists and 106 winners, which included a few ties. “Our 11th annual Best of Morgantown competition was an outpouring of Morgantown magazine reader love for local businesses. In the end, voters chose first-time winners in many of BOM’s 101 categories and recognized 11th wins to a handful of businesses,” Kasey said.

The Best of Morgantown issue of the magazine, profiling all of the 2022 winners, is available for free at dozens of locations across Morgantown. To view a virtual copy, go to 2022 Best of Morgantown Online Issue or click here for the Clear Mountain Bank profile page.
