Who We Are

We are invested in making the communities we serve stronger and providing the best experience for our clients. “Smaller Bank, Bigger Service, Stronger Community” is not just a tagline; it’s a promise. Our commitment to client and community service is at the forefront of everything we do.


Since our inception in 2005, as Bank of Belleville, we have made a significant impact on our local economy through the funding of projects, creation of jobs, and the use of local service providers. And you will find our same philosophy, expertise and financial strength consistently in each of our regional banks: Bank of Madison County, Bank of Clinton County and Bank of Monroe County. In each location our dedicated team members bring experience and passion to their work, and it shows in our day-to-day operations.


We pride ourselves on being part “of” something larger than just being your bank. We go beyond banking to support our communities, and our communities support us. Our growth is highly attributed to word-of-mouth support from satisfied clients.


Whether your banking is business or personal, you will find friendly and knowledgeable team members offering all the services you’d expect, and more. While fully embracing the newest technologies — services like check scanners, electronic banking, and mobile banking — we take pride in our “throwback” approach to banking. This means clients speak directly with decision-makers, helpful personal bankers answer the phones, and we promptly meet every client’s needs.


We are proud of the banks our teams have built, and the communities we serve and work alongside. We invite you to share our excitement and see what it means to bank with a member of your community. Your satisfaction is of utmost importance to us, and we would love the opportunity to change your banking experience forever.
