Peoples Bank - History

Peoples Bank of East Tennessee is a locally owned and operated community bank established in 1997 with its home office in Madisonville, TN.  From the initial conversations with our founders to the monthly staff meetings of today, our core philosophy is to provide every customer of Peoples Bank with exceptional service.  This includes being able to provide the latest in product offerings and technological advances such as free on-line banking, ATM, debit, and credit card services and convenient six-day banking hours. 

This emphasis on true community banking has been extremely well received as evidenced by our growth over the last nineteen years.  Since first opening our doors, Peoples Bank has grown from 18 employees with branches in Madisonville and Tellico Plains to a total of nine convenient locations, a team of 84 staff members and assets of over $210,000,000. 

All of us here at Peoples Bank welcome the opportunity to serve you and invite you to contact any of our friendly staff to find out more about what we believe is the best community bank in our market area.
