About Central Bank

Making It Happen Since 1877

Make It Happen. That’s the nature of being a part of Central Bank. Our small-town roots and dedication to the communities we serve push us to help our customers and communities to accomplish great things.

We’re family-owned, and decisions are made locally—not in a distant skyscraper. So whether it’s a mortgage, a small-business loan, operating funds for an ag operation or a new checking account, our employees go above and beyond to make Central Bank work for you and the communities in which we all live.

We’ve been around for a long, long time. But that doesn't mean we stand pat. Following the purchase of the bank in 1990 by brothers Tim and John Brown, Central Bank experienced unprecedented growth that continues to this day. In the 32+ years under the Brown family leadership, Central Bank has grown from $30 million in assets to more than $1.9 billion in assets.

Today, we serve an expanding book of business—with a deep roster of commercial and agricultural lenders. We also offer expertise in mortgage loans and insurance services.

Tim and John Brown achieved the dreams they had when they first purchased Central Bank. Our friendly, hard-working Central Bank employees, now numbering more than 300 and always growing, are ready to help you achieve yours.
