Local People…Helping Local People!

First Community Bank and Trust is encouraging consumers and small business owners to bank local and keep their money in the community that they live in. Because we put local deposits back to work in the community and because we are financial first responders both in good times and in bad, customers of ours will be reinvesting in their neighborhood and making it a better place to live and work for generations to come.

By keeping their money local, consumers will realize the litany of benefits that come with banking with a community bank including a relationship-based banking experience, superior customer service, the pride that comes with reinvesting in one’s community and working with employees that are local.

“By going local and banking locally with your community bank, consumers can make a real difference in the lives of their neighbors and the future of their community,” said Greg M Ohlendorf, President and CEO of First Community Bank and Trust. “They’ll be making a hometown investment they can be proud of.  After all, the money they deposit with us will be reinvested in ways that drive their local economy, such as in the form of loans to local residents who want to buy a home or to small business owners who are looking to open shop on Main Street.”

As a small business ourselves, we thrive when our customers and communities do the same, so taking care of customers and looking out for the best interest of our community is engrained in the way we conduct our business each and every day.  A major advantage of banking with a local community bank is that we are locally owned and operated. We have local employees and local shareholders making local decision that helps us understand the unique challenges and financial needs of our communities. And when consumers call their local community bank, they’ll be reassured to know that they won’t be talking to someone halfway across the globe or even in another part of the state. Instead, they will be talking with their community banker who lives and works in the same community they do.

If you know of someone that is looking for a true community bank to call home, please have him or her give us a call. We are looking to make a relationship with local residents and businesses that will in turn make our communities stronger. We are local people…helping local people.
