Bank of Clinton County recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its grand opening. The bank is located at 1210 E. Hanover St., New Baden. Todd Juehne serves as the Bank of Clinton County Market president.
“We’re honored to put down permanent roots here in Clinton County and offer our services from a depository loan and treasury management standpoint,” said Juehne. “I’ve lived in here for nearly 30 years and have 25 years of banking experience. It’s exciting to bring a community banking option to this area that upholds the values of being a smaller bank, offering bigger service and supporting the Clinton County communities we serve.”
Plocher Construction built the 3,200-square-foot building which is powered partially by solar energy and includes two drive-up lanes with an ATM. The bank currently has six team members, all from the local community. In addition to Juehne, those include Bank Manager Gina Meier, Universal Bankers Ann Richter and Cora Worthington, Community Banker Brad Haar and Small Business Banking Specialist Brandon Rakers. According to Juehne, Bank of Clinton County will be a full-service bank specializing in business and personal relationships.
Bank of Clinton County is a division of Bank of Belleville, a locally owned and controlled, independent community bank located in Belleville, Illinois. The 15-year-old bank, which has eclipsed $300 million in assets, serves individual and business clients throughout the Metro East through its headquarters and divisional banks; Bank of Madison County, Bank of Clinton County and Bank of Monroe County.
Bank of Belleville President and Chief Executive Officer, Ron Stephens said its growth strategy is allowing Bank of Belleville to continue its mission as a community and relationship-driven bank while establishing regional strength across the entire Metro East.
