Message from the CEOEd - Message from CEO

Welcome to our website. I am Ed Sullivan, CEO for the State Bank of Bussey. Banking has been my world for over 30 years, and there are many reasons why I am pleased to work here.

State Bank of Bussey has been locally owned by the Hansen family since 1961. Currently many banks are changing ownership, some multiple times. This causes the State Bank of Bussey owners and employees to continue to commitment to remain an independently owned bank.

Yes we are one of the smaller banks in southeast Iowa. But this gives us opportunities not available to the “Big Box Banks” – face to face interaction, and truly knowing our customers and them knowing us. We are ordinary people just like you – you wear jeans, so we wear jeans. People are our true assets making us unique and we are perfectly fine with that assessment.

Consider this your invitation to stop in and see for yourself how State Bank of Bussey does business everyday.

Questions or comments can be directed to me at (641)672-9863 or to customerservice@sbbussey.com. (Please do NOT send confidential information to this email address.)

Thank you,

Ed Sullivan, CEO
