SAINT PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) - Ann and V. Philip Reim of Alliance Bank accepted a Celebrate Business Success Award (CBS Award) at the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce's 142nd Annual Meeting. Susan Kratz, partner at Moore, Costello & Hart, P.L.L.P., presented the CBS Award to Ann and Philip, who represent the third generation of the Reim Family to bank in downtown Saint Paul.

The Reim Family and Alliance Bank were honored with the CBS Award for their strong community presence and commitment to the city of Saint Paul. Alliance Bank doubled its space and will remain the anchor tenant in its building for the next 10 years. Through their civic involvement in activities such as the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, Alliance Bank makes a positive impact and promotes goodwill for the city. These accomplishments also speak volumes about the company's pride that has been present for more than 100 years.

The Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce and the law firm of Moore, Costello & Hart, P.L.L.P., partnered in early 2005 to honor businesses and individuals in a recognition program called Celebrate Business Success. The program has become a tradition at the Chamber and recognizes those who provide leading examples of how members of the business community contribute to a shared vision of economic success throughout the Saint Paul/East Metro area. The Chamber receives hundreds of nominations each year, from which about 15 winners are chosen. Winners are presented with the award at Chamber events throughout the year.
