About Us

At Heritage Bank, we’re not all “About Us.” We’re about you… our customers, our communities, and our employees.

Heritage Bank’s mission is to help people succeed financially.  Specifically, that means:

  • Helping our customers meet their goals and achieve their dreams
  • Supporting our communities and helping them thrive
  • Providing a gainful and enjoyable workplace for our employee owners
  • Providing a sound and profitable return for our investors.

Through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), Heritage Bank is able to reinvest in the employees and support the local communities we serve.

Our products and technology have evolved along with the markets we serve as we have grown steadily over the generations. Yet, we maintain the traditional values from our roots as a Midwestern community-focused bank… it’s our heritage.”
