Message from the President
Community Banking is alive and well
The Peoples Bank is proud to be the only locally owned and operated bank in Knox County. Local ownership means local decisions. Our Board Members and staff are your neighbors and have a strong commitment to serving the Knox County community.
Over the course of the last few years, the financial crisis has impacted many financial institutions but our history of lending to qualified borrowers and knowing our customers has allowed us to remain financially strong. We continue to make loans and provide deposit products just like we always have. Banking regulators closely monitor the capital levels and asset quality of all banks. The Peoples Bank is pleased to have earned BauerFinancial’s 5-Star Superior rating for financial strength and stability for over 25 years. Our Staff is dedicated to maintaining the high performance standards that our customers have come to expect over the past 93 years.
We recognize that convenience is crucial in today’s world and in addition to 24 hour a day access to ATM’s, Internet Banking and Bill Pay, we decided to make stopping in to see us even easier by opening a second location in Mount Vernon this year. It will be located on Newark Road next to Lanning’s Food. We hope you can stop in once the branch is opened. We are here to serve you and welcome the opportunity to discuss your financial needs in detail. Experience The Peoples Bank, community banking at its best.
Paul G. Wreede
President & CEO
Your 5-Star Community Bank
