About United Community Bank
United Community Bank (UCB) is a $3 billion bank operating seven bank brands with more than 100 bank and ATM locations in 33 communities.
Headquartered in Chatham, Illinois, UCB is employee-owned and managed, and does not answer to any out-of-state management or shareholder group. This allows us to make smart decisions that provide the best possible products and services for our customers. Our local management philosophy and corporate stewardship extend to each of the communities our banks, our employees, and our customers, call home!
UCB traces its roots back to 1907, when Farmer’s State Bank was established in Greenfield, IL. In 1973, a local group invested in Farmer's State Bank with the goal of delivering the ultimate customer service while continuing to welcome other banks in central, southern, and western Illinois into the United Community Bank family.
Today, our United Community Banks include: United Community Bank, Brown County State Bank, Golden State Bank, Marine Bank & Trust, Mercantile Bank, Farmers State Bank of Camp Point, and Liberty Bank. View our Corporate Timeline.
