Letter from our President

Home About Us President's Letter

Welcome to Peoples Bank!

You’ve found the right place.  Whether you are looking for new banking services or you are already a customer, I’m glad you’ve landed at this page, wanting to know a little more about us. 

The bank was founded in 1962 by my grandfather, Romy Hammes, and carried on by my father Jerry. Peoples Bank continues to be a community bank guided by the principal of delivering an exceptional customer experience the way you want it…be it with a hand shake, smile, and a visit, or through the use of today’s current technology. 

Our 55-plus years of experience has taught us a few things.  You want friendly staff, and you want to be treated like your business is important.  You want plain talk.  You want to work with experienced and veteran bankers.  You want to work with decision-makers who are only a few steps away.  You want to bank with people who work, live, and play in the same community as you.  You want integrity.  You want a bank planted firmly on solid ground where your money is safe.  You want products and services that make your life easier.  And you want good rates.    

If these things are important to you, you’ve come to the right place, and I invite you to bank with us.  Stop by, email or call us and we’d be happy to discuss how we can make banking better for you.


Jeff Hammes
