Relationships matter most
With deep roots in serving political organizations throughout the DC metropolitan area, our client relationships are built by responsive banking professionals who take the time to get to know the clients they serve.
“By law, PACs are required to maintain at least one (1) checking account for purposes of accepting contributions and making disbursements to candidates and political committees. All national banks and federally insured credit unions are eligible to provide this service; however, we know firsthand most of these institutions have limited experience opening and administering such accounts. That’s why when Capital Bank created a unit specifically for the purpose of servicing PACs AND assigned an officer knowledgeable of PAC operations that got my attention.
From initial set-up for a new PAC, to changing the designated account signers, or adding positive pay, I can count on Chuck Kettenacker and Capital Bank to get it accomplished quickly and correctly. For the PAC community, having a bank that “gets it” is a truly valuable resource and PAC Outsourcing has and will continue to recommend Capital Bank to our clients and friends for their PAC banking requirements.”

“Chuck is an out-of-the-box thinker and has developed some smart banking services focused around the PAC community. He is extremely responsive and dedicated to his work. If I ever need his help, he is available 24/7. I highly recommend Chuck to anyone looking for financial solutions in the PAC & small business arena.”
Dan Backer, Esq.
Principal Attorney, political.law
“We have worked with Chuck Kettenacker for 8 years. We worked with another local bank for over 20 years prior to switching our accounts. We grew increasingly frustrated with the lack of customer service and slow response time. As a client services organization ourselves, we need a banker who responds to our questions and concerns in a timely manner because we have to respond to our clients. Slow response has never been an issue since we started working with Chuck. If he is unable to respond, he has someone from his team respond to us with answers and/or resolutions to our issues. Every bank is happy to take your money and open an account. What separates the excellent banks from the mediocre ones is an excellent banker and Chuck Kettenacker is an excellent banker!”
