It’s with great enthusiasm that we celebrate our 110th anniversary. Built from humble beginnings, we have pursued growth and new technologies to better meet the needs of our loyal customers. 1904 to the present has been filled with insightful visionaries, determined co-workers, and loyal shareholders who have helped mold the rich culture and unique history Hills Bank enjoys today.
Hills Bank was founded in the small town of Hills, Iowa, by a group of 19 dedicated citizens with $10,000 among them and the dream of organizing a local savings bank. Today, we encompass 17 offices in three eastern Iowa counties with 425 employees, with plans to open a new location in Washington this fall.
While we are still headquartered in a town of fewer than 700 people, Hills Bank is one of the largest independent banks in Iowa with over 125,000 customers. We are owned by over 2,200 shareholders in addition to our 425 employees. This means we have a large and diverse group advocating for the growth and prosperity of our company. Each shareholder is an owner and does their part to encourage and promote the Hills Bank Way of doing business. Our customers benefit from the breadth of experience our shareholders bring to Hills Bank as their local insight communicates the needs of the community.
Hills Bank has remained committed to its most valued assets: its customers and co-workers. We have been serving individuals, businesses, and non-profit organizations in eastern Iowa for 110 years, delivering quality personal service and trusted professional investment expertise.
Our core principles and values guide us each day as we seek to improve the lives of our customers and the community. During our 110th anniversary celebration, we can work together to make a positive impact on the communities where we live and work. We look forward to revealing more special surprises throughout the year on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn to celebrate our 110th anniversary.
