One bank with one purpose. That is Community Bank Owatonna, and their sole purpose is to serve you – the Owatonna community! Their mission is to create an environment that nurtures personal relationships, fosters quality service, and welcomes change and innovation. As the only locally owned and independently operated bank in the community, Community Bank Owatonna is one bank with infinite possibilities.
Community Bank Owatonna was founded in 2002 by a group of local bankers and business leaders who wanted to bring needed changes to Owatonna’s banking landscape. They had the foresight to imagine the impact of a true community bank, where deposit dollars would be reinvested in Owatonna to benefit the local economy. On July 7, 2003, the directors, officers, and staff opened the doors of the newly constructed Community Bank Owatonna and welcomed the community to experience the difference of a true community bank. Today, Community Bank Owatonna has grown to more than $70 million in assets, while remaining solely focused on the mission created by its founders nearly 20 years ago. As the bank’s customers have succeeded, the bank has also succeeded, and as a result, today is well-positioned for additional growth and prosperity.
