Western Illinois Bancshares, Inc.
 
 

Welcome to the Western Illinois Bancshares, Inc. Website!

Western Illinois Bancshares, Inc., otherwise known as WIBI, was established in the fall of 2005 when the board of directors of Midwest Bank of Western Illinois and other local investors bought the bank from its former owner, Midwest Banc Holdings, Inc. of Melrose Park.

Midwest Bank of Western Illinois, formerly known as The National Bank of Monmouth established in 1870, had been purchased in 1992 by the aforementioned Chicago area company and had its name and charter changed in 1998.  WIBI was established by the purchasing group as a bank holding company which owns all shares of Midwest Bank of Western Illinois. 

Our 1,004,720 shares of common stock are owned by fewer than 150 stockholders and are therefore considered privately held.  Anyone interested in purchasing or selling shares should contact Ann McCreight at (309) 457-6267 or toll free at (888) 309-2265.

Midwest Bank of Western Illinois prides itself on its people, their banking experience and high quality customer service.  While striving to provide our older customers the traditional banking services they expect, we try to provide our younger and tech-savvy customers with the most up-to-date electronic and mobile banking features.

We offer  all of the modern banking technologies including internet banking, online bill pay, check and document imaging, telephone and mobile banking applications, both debit and credit cards along with remote capture for commercial customers.

The trust department provides a full range of services from farm management to trust and estate management.  Our insurance subsidiary, Porter Insurance, can meet all the insurance needs of individuals, businesses and farmers.  Investment services are provided by our Raymond James offices located at the main bank in Monmouth and our Seminary Street branch in Galesburg.

With eight locations in a four county area of West Central Illinois, Midwest Bank of Western Illinois serves the individuals and businesses that make our agricultural economy strong and prosperous.

If you wish to know more about our company, its products or services, please contact Ann McCreight at the numbers listed above.

Sincerely,

Augustin "Gus" S. Hart III
President
