Bank of Madison County opens in Downtown Edwardsville


Bank of Madison County has opened its doors in downtown Edwardsville at 100 North Main St., in the landmark Bohm Building at Main and Vandalia.

The temporary space will serve as a temporary space while a permanent location is finalized nearby.

Paul Abert, Edwardsville native and Bank of Madison County Market President, said the bank is full-service and will specialize in business and personal loans, while putting special emphasis on building personal client relationships. With team members who bring experience and passion to their work, Abert is confident clients will see a noticeable difference in the level of service and bank’s day-to-day operations.

“This is a full-circle moment for me because I started my banking career in downtown Edwardsville in 1983 and this is where I learned so many of my founding principles about what it means to be a community banker,” said Abert. “I love that Bank of Madison County upholds those same principles, and they are also selecting a location in the heart of the county seat that will be easily accessible to everyone.”

Bank of Madison County will be open daily from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. with additional hours available by
appointment. As part of the downtown business district, parking is free on all streets, as well as the surface lot
behind the Bohm building.

Bank of Madison County is a division of Bank of Belleville, a 15-year-old bank which has grown to approximately a quarter of one billion dollars in assets. Bank of Belleville is a locally owned and controlled, independent community bank located in St. Clair County, Illinois.

“Our bank’s success is built on our relationships with clients, so placing the right people in each of these new markets, who really understand each community, is key,” said Ron Stephens, President and CEO. “We are investing in brick and mortar locations so our teams can work within and contribute to the communities where they live and have connections.” You are going to find our consistent philosophy, expertise and financial strength in each of our regional banks: Bank of Madison County, Bank of Clinton County (opening Spring 2021) and Bank of Monroe County (opening Fall 2021).
