History & Leadership


Valley Bank was founded in 1993 in Iowa, by a group of local bankers and business professionals with a vision for a community bank that would provide extraordinary service. Valley Bank became the first bank chartered in Iowa since 1968 and is now headquartered in Moline, Illinois.

At Valley Bank, we attribute our success to the vision of our founders and their commitment to service. Their strong belief in focusing on the individual needs of our clients is what sets Valley Bank apart from others in the industry. We take pride in helping all of our customers buy their homes, grow their businesses and achieve their financial goals. Every city and town where we have a presence is considered a hometown to the Valley Bank employees who work there. Therefore we are actively involved in each community we serve.
