President’s Message

Mission Statement

Peoples Bank is a sound, independent, locally owned community bank. We energetically serve the businesses and residents of our surrounding communities. Our mission is to:

  • Earn the trust and confidence of our customers.
  • Ensure the safety of all deposits.
  • Provide a full range of banking services.
  • Deliver superior personalized service.

In all our activities, Peoples Bank is committed to being:

  • Respectful, trustworthy and honest.
  • Friendly, personable and helpful.
  • Professional, ethical and fair.
  • Willing to listen and prompt in making decisions.
  • Supportive of efforts to enrich community life.
  • Environmentally conscious and earth friendly.

For years we have been saying that we are proud to be your local community bank. But what does that mean?

First, let’s talk “local.” Hundreds of local citizens throughout southeastern Wisconsin own Peoples Bank and elect a local board of directors. Our senior management team, our officers, our managers and our employees are all local folks. So if you call us, you will talk to your local hometown office. If you stop into one of our area locations, the decision on your loan or request will be made right here just minutes from your home.

Next is “community.” We feel privileged to be part of the awesome communities which we serve. We take giving back to our local community very seriously. In fact, each year we donate tens of thousands of dollars to area non-profits and our employees spend thousands of volunteer hours giving back to the communities we serve.

Third, as a bank, we accept deposits from our local residents and businesses and invest that money right back into our community via loans for small business, consumer, mortgages, farms, industry and more. Your deposits are not invested in far away places, simply reinvested right here at home. And on top of all that, we deliver good, old-fashioned customer service and a solid work ethic. Our products are tailored to meet the specific needs of area residents, homeowners, retailers, businesses, farm operations, non-profit organizations, seniors and children.

So when we say we’re proud to be your only locally owned community bank, that matters to us. And it should matter to you, too. Support local business. Support your community bank.
