Illinois Bank & Trust
Illinois Bank & Trust serves customers from 11 locations in the Rockford metropolitan area, Rock Falls/Sterling region, Galena, Elizabeth and Stockton, Illinois markets. The bank is managed by a local board of directors and effectively run by local managers and local employees making decisions.
In early 2014, Freedom Bank based in Rock Falls, IL, merged with Riverside Community Bank. Later that year, Illinois Bank & Trust was born to incorporate the Rock Falls and Rockford Regions. In 2015, Galena State Bank became part of Illinois Bank & Trust, resulting in the representation of more than 100 years of community banking experience.
The mergers allow all Illinois Bank & Trust locations to serve clients under a common brand, fostering opportunities to expand the bank’s presence in the state to better serve customers through increased locations, greater convenience and expanded service.
