Our History

Countryside Bank offers banking that helps you build your best life.  We believe builders are everywhere.  Whether it’s growing families, expanding businesses, constructing houses or preparing for retirement – people are actively moving ahead.  When builders bank with Countryside Bank, we place them on the fast track for reaching their goals. Our motto, “It’s grow time,” demonstrates our commitment to helping our customers grow through life’s stages and attain their goals.

Originally known as State Bank of Countryside, the Bank was founded in 1975 by Jack Wheeler, who believed in building personal relationships and being an active part of the community.  Continuing to embrace his legacy is his son, John Wheeler, President/CEO of the Bank.  He continues the 40 year tradition of building relationships and offering products & services to help you build a better life.

We attribute our continued growth & success to the hard work and dedication of our employees, and the opportunities our customers provide us to help them. Many in our management team have been with the bank for decades and have been instrumental in maintaining our focus and commitment to serving our customers. We’ve succeeded because we believe in listening to you and learning exactly what your needs are, and unlike others, we take the time to do so.  

Banking with Countryside Bank means banking with people who want to help you build your best life…it’s grow time.
