WE ARE OBSESSED WITH OUR CUSTOMERS.
We are trusted to adhere to our word, we take that seriously. We are extremely loyal to our customers, accountable for our actions, and use our delivery on expectations as our competitive advantage. We outperform with a will to win.
We Demonstrate this by: Our customer satisfaction is the driver of our financial performance. Customer surveys reveal 95% of new borrowers would refer us to a family member or friend.

Alongside our dedication to consumer banking, we proudly have a strong concentration in commercial banking — with intentions of keeping jobs local, businesses thriving, and communities healthy. And our support of the agricultural community is second to none, our Ag team holds over 350 combined years as both farmers and Ag Bankers — that’s a rare combination in any industry.
OUR STRENGTH IS DERIVED FROM OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE COMMUNITY.
We lead with good citizenship by fostering customer relationships and community cohesion. We have an insatiable need to do what is right for the greater good in the communities we call home, and beyond. We serve our customers and community as advocates for their financial success.

Over the last 5 years, we’ve contributed over $1 million to education, youth, health care, agriculture and community development.
