We Are so Much More Than a


Our Story

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. Hopefully you’ve already got the hint that we love what we do for you. (Yes, bankers have passion, too!) In fact, Core Bank was so named because you – our customers – are at its very core. Our name speaks to strength + substance, strong character + sound banking principles, heart + soul.

We strive to be the local bank that is running ahead of the pack, creating better options for our community, for businesses, and friends and neighbors. And we’re working hard to build a strong team culture, constantly encouraging each other to think creatively on your behalf.

I hope you’ll call or stop by one of our convenient locations sometime soon. Let us introduce you to a banking experience that’s being redefined, and designed specifically with you in mind – you at the core.

Why Core Bank?

Our Customers Come First

Core Bank aspires to be a truly remarkable company that just happens to be a bank. “Remarkable” is a tall order, but we know that success is about consistency and excellence in serving our customers, and attention to detail in both the smallest and grandest matters of business. We’re obsessed with giving you a great experience every time you interact with us, whether it’s through business banking, private banking, or our online banking solutions. We’re always getting better for your sake.

We Deliver

We’re a full-service bank with a comprehensive menu of products and expertise, including private banking, business banking, and real estate (residential construction and mortgage) banking, and trust services. We provide a breadth and depth of knowledge not often found at other banks, all served up with a personal touch.

We Are a Community Bank

As a locally-owned bank, we have deep roots in the community. Our work ethic and commitment are homegrown in the heartland. We’ve built ourselves around strong ownership, strong leadership, strong practices, and strong values.

We Innovate

We’re proud to be a community bank, but we don’t rest on our local laurels. We strive to be both high touch and high tech. We’re leading the market with advanced technology to provide convenience and security in online banking, but we still love to interact with our customers in personalized and awesomely unexpected ways. Think of us as a not-too-big bank with super-impressive services and capabilities.

We Are So Much More Than a Bank

We do everything by design (including our culture). We keep things smart, simple, and intentional. We are fostering an environment that’s a great place to bank and a great place to work. We’re always growing together, learning together, and having fun doing it. We do what’s right for the customer because that’s what really matters—you at the core.

A Manifesto of Our Beliefs

We are so much more than a bank.
Not a mere collection of buildings and financial tools.
Not just a place to work or manage money.
We are a community. First and foremost.
Of friends and neighbors.
And partners in making life just a little bit better.
When the rest of the world settles, we push on.
To something greater.
More fun.
We think positive.
We do the right thing.
And we never pretend to be nice. We just are.
Because that’s how we’d want to be treated.
And that’s what truly matters.
Core Bank. You at the core.

Vision for the Future

Now and in the future, we strive to be truly remarkable for the sake of what matters most: our customers.
We’ll never stop reaching for new, innovative private and business banking solutions to serve your unique needs.

Our Values

At Core Bank, we offer more than just words when it comes to our values.
By offering rewards to our customers, creating secure online banking solutions, and keeping our local roots in mind at every turn, we’re able to make good on our promise to keep you at the core.
We work, hire, and serve you by these principles every day.

Our Culture

At Core Bank, this is our unique recipe for awesome:


We want more than anything to create a banking experience that will delight and surprise.


We encourage curiosity and the courage to push for better.


Our best and brightest want responsibility, not power.


We don’t do anything we’d be ashamed to tell our grandmother.


We have no room for not-nice people. Being smart isn’t an excuse for being rude.


We help each other get to great.


We do good work. No shortcuts. No excuses.


We protect what’s entrusted to us by our shareholders and our customers.


We all deserve to love what we do. We are in charge of making this company great.
