Welcome from First Bank & Trust
CEO / President, First Bank & Trust, Brookings
I know I speak for all of us at First Bank & Trust and Fishback Financial Corporation when I say I am delighted with the prospect of uniting Peoples Bank of Commerce and State Bank of New Prague with our organization. Our banks share a long-held commitment to the fundamentals of community banking, which centers on a strong, relationship-based service culture and a dedication to the success of our employees, our customers and our communities.
Our organization has long sought a partnership like this one, and we believe Peoples Bank and State Bank bring so much to the table, including growth opportunities in key Minnesota markets area and a talented staff with tight connections in their communities.
We are eager to help both banks grow while providing customers the benefits of more regional locations and an expanded line of products and services. This partnership will allow us all to be stronger, more competitive and more profitable moving forward.
Finally, we can’t wait to share with you our strong company culture, our excellent benefits and employee-ownership opportunities, and our dedication to giving back in each of our communities through charitable donations and employee volunteerism.
