Message from the President
To our valued customers, neighbors and community members,
Over our 95 year history, The Peoples Bank has been offering the residents and businesses of Knox County a real community bank alternative, where local decision making and local relationships are the heart of every transaction. Our commitment is to our customers, the trust we’ve built with generations of families, and the high performance standards our customers have come to expect.
A local bank is a tremendous resource and is more important to our communities than most people realize. Because we live and work here, we are profoundly aware of the needs of local customers and the problems our neighbors face. Since we are locally owned and operated, we can be active in helping to address these needs swiftly. Whether an issue involves credit availability, manpower, ideas, or financial donations, a community bank like The Peoples Bank is often in the mix of community leaders lending a helping hand.
The Peoples Bank is pleased to have earned BauerFinancials’s 5-Star Superior rating for financial strength and stability for over 25 years. We will promote the strong customer service culture that we are known for among our customers and peers. The strength of our products reflects our commitment to great service.
The Peoples Bank has three convenient locations: its original branch located in Gambier, Ohio near the Kenyon College campus; its second branch location on Upper Gilchrist Road; and, our newest location Newark Road located next to Lanning’s Foods. In addition to the bank’s convenient location we hope that you will take advantage of all of our electronic services including: online banking and bill payment, debit cards, ATMs and telephone banking. 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.
On behalf of our Directors and our team, I thank you for your continued trust, confidence and investment in our Company.
Paul G. Wreede
President & CEO
Your 5-Star Community Bank
