United Bank

United Bank got its start in 1887 as the Wayland Exchange Bank. Over the years, they’ve opened branches across West Michigan and added a mortgage corporation, investment center, and even a full-service insurance agency. Close ties with individual customers and partnerships with the communities they serve has been the key to their success, allowing them to steadily expand in size and significantly broaden their portfolio of financial products and services.

CEO Art Johnson says, “As a local company, we truly care about what you think. Like you, we live and work right here in the community. You’re just as likely to see us around town as you are to be greeted warmly by us at the teller window or on the other end of the phone. These kind of relationships mean that we’re especially committed to operating with your best interests in mind. We’re a safe and sound bank you can trust to be here tomorrow.”

A lot has changed since first opening their doors in 1887. But some things never will. Today, United Bank is family owned – and dedicated to providing the same level of personal service and secure products you can’t find just anywhere. That’s been their philosophy for more than 125 years, and you can count on it to stay that way. Whether you’re a long-time customer or are looking for a new place to bank, United Bank welcomes the opportunity to serve you.
