Who We Are

Where you choose to bank matters.

Better Banks is an employee-owned community bank offering all of the same financial solutions as other banks, but we're right here and committed to our local communities. Since 1898, Better Banks has been serving the banking needs of our local community. As a community bank, we support our local economy by providing loans to the neighborhoods where we live and work, helping to keep our communities vibrant and growing!

Our customers are our top priority. We are committed to helping customers reach their goals and succeed. We understand that with innovation comes opportunity, and we strive to provide tools for success to all of our customers. We know that when our customers succeed, we succeed and our communities grow and prosper. That’s why we empower our people to make decisions that allows us to act in the best interest of our customers and neighbors.

With eight full-service banking locations, we do business where our customers need us. Through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), we are able to reinvest in our employees and give back to the local communities we serve. We know that by donating our time, offering financial assistance, sponsoring local events; we can transform the lives of our neighbors and improve our communities.

Where you choose to bank matters. At Better Banks we put our money to work in the neighborhood that we call home. From local farms to small businesses, banking locally with Better Banks connects you to your community and your neighbors and gives everyone a stake in its financial success.

We see the positive power of community banking play out every day. At Better Banks, we have the privilege of serving our local community residents and their families by making loans that help them buy a home, pay for a vehicle, or send a child to college—whatever it is, we’re there and happy to lend a hand. We also have the honor of serving many of our town’s small businesses through loans to help them get started, grow and succeed.

We’ve also served many of the local farms and agricultural enterprises that have been part of our community for generations. And we’re working with the next generation of entrepreneurs to help launch their exciting ideas and bring our community into the future. This is local money at work—a relationship between bank and community that makes sense. 

We know we’re only as strong as the communities we serve.

After all, when the locations we serve succeed, we succeed. And if we can play a role in helping to sustain or grow these communities, we’ve done our job.

But we don’t stop there. We work in a culture that supports that belief. Our team members donate countless hours volunteering with local charities, supporting organizations that make our communities better places for us all.

As a community bank, we feel strongly that giving back to our local community is important, especially efforts aimed at improving overall economic well-being and making a positive difference in our local schools and communities.

Making our community better and stronger is what Better Banks is all about!
