A group of bankers, business professionals, and farmers from the Sauk Valley area realized the need to start a “community bank.” Corporate banks were becoming more focused on their own needs rather than those of the customers and community. There was a need for a bank that listened to its customers and handled decisions locally. A bank where you were a face with a name, and not just a number.
Our philosophy and goals are the same today as they were back then; to provide the best products and services to the people of the Sauk Valley area by offering solutions that fit their financial needs. Whether it is; personal, commercial, or agricultural, we can serve our community’s financial needs.
We are proud of the quality service we provide, and we have adopted a company philosophy that is called RADAR, which stands for; At Sauk Valley Bank, we build our RELATIONSHIPS around ACCOUNTABILITY to our customers and team members, by DELIGHTING them with the ATTENTION and RESPECT they deserve.
