The Montgomery Bank Story

This is, was, and always will be a people business.

At Montgomery Bank, we focus every day on making banking easy for our customers and treating each person we meet like family. We’ve been family owned since 1957. We take a lot of pride in providing the personal, friendly service of a community bank while offering all the conveniences and amenities of a national chain. With twelve branches across Southeast Missouri and St. Louis, we can’t wait to serve you and your family’s banking needs.

Built on The Golden Rule

Treat everyone as you would like to be treated.

Our founder, Joel Montgomery Senior, built Montgomery Bank on the values of treating everyone with kindness and respect. He lived those values every single day—happily greeting everyone he met by name, asking them about their day, their family, and keeping up with the lives of his neighbors. As anyone who knew him will surely tell you, Mr. Montgomery never met a stranger—he truly was “everybody’s person.” He touched the lives of countless people, leaving a lasting legacy in his community of Sikeston, Missouri, and well beyond.

Every day we strive to live up to the example Mr. Montgomery set and carry on his “Rules of Banking.”

Easier and Friendlier

When you visit Montgomery Bank, expect to be greeted by friendly, smiling faces. We are grateful for the privilege to help generations of families navigate their most important financial milestones, from opening a child’s first savings account to buying a home to fulfilling a dream of starting a small business. We make all of our lending decisions in-house, so you won’t have to wait for a decision from an unknown banker halfway across the country.

We aim to make every aspect of banking as easy and straightforward as possible. We know you have a lot on your plate already, so you don’t have to make important financial decisions alone—we are here for you. Our team will take the time to explain all of the account and lending options available to you, and help you choose the best option for you, your family, or your business. Whether you prefer to bank in person, online, or from your smartphone, we have banking options available to fit your lifestyle and financial needs.

Focused on Our Community

We are blessed to have the support of our community, and we don’t take that support for granted. Our founder, Mr. Montgomery, established the Sikeston Rescue Mission and Bootheel Food Bank, and we’re proud to say that our employees today possess that same servant heart. Many donate both their time and money to charities that give back to their communities, including the Kenny Rogers Children’s Center, the SEMO Food Bank, Relay for Life, United Way, the USO, Toys for Tots, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
