Lee County Bank Acquisition
Frank Delaney, Board Chair of Two Rivers Financial Group, Inc., announced it will expand its banking operations into Lee County as they have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Lee County Bank with locations in Fort Madison and West Point, Iowa from Lee Capital Corp.
“With nearly 252 combined years of service and a shared commitment to community banking, Two Rivers Financial Group, Inc. and Lee County Bank are two organizations sharing the same customer-centric banking focus and compatible cultures”, said Delaney. He continued, “Two Rivers Financial Group, Inc. is pleased to expand our footprint to serve neighboring communities and customers”.
Lee County Bank will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Two Rivers Financial Group, Inc. with Shane Zimmerman serving as Lee County Bank CEO and Michael Culbertson as Lee County Bank President. “Customers of Lee County Bank will continue to be served by the same banking professionals they have grown accustomed to”, said Delaney.
