About Central Bank

Making It Happen Since 1887

Make It Happen. That’s the nature of being a part of Central Bank. Our small-town roots and dedication to the communities we serve push us to help our customers and communities to accomplish great things. We’re family-owned and decisions are made locally, not in a distant skyscraper. Whether it’s a mortgage, a small-business loan, operating funds for an ag operation or a new checking account, our people go above and beyond to make Central Bank work for you and the community we all live in.

We’ve been around for a long, long time. That doesn't mean we stand pat. Following the purchase of the bank in 1990 by brothers Tim and John Brown, Central Bank has seen unprecedented growth that continues to this day. In 2013, the brothers purchased Liberty Bank branches in metro Des Moines. Now a bank with assets exceeding $750 million, Central Bank services an expanding book of business with a deep roster of commercial and agricultural lenders who have access to a $10 million lending limit.

We also offer expertise in home loans, trust and insurance services.  Our army of Central Bank employees, now numbering more than 200 and growing as we expand, is ready to serve you.
