Who We Are

Guaranty Bank (doing business as BestBank in Michigan and Georgia) is a fourth generation, family-managed company. Founded in 1923 by Joseph Saffro, its one small office in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin offered just mortgages and savings accounts. It survived the lean years of the twenties and began growing in the 1930s. At that time Joseph's son Samuel joined the business. Over the next 25 years, the bank evolved into a full service bank with expanded products and services. Joseph and Samuel's vision grew as other family members joined the management team. Today, Samuel's son-in-law, Jerry Levy, is the chairman of Guaranty/BestBank. Jerry's son, Doug Levy, is the President and CEO.
