The German American Bank difference:
German American Bank is a regional bank with a commitment to community banking. We empower our employees to serve our customers in exceptional ways with local, responsive decision-making. We employ local people in every community we serve, and we believe in giving back to help our local communities thrive, so its people can prosper.

How did we get the German American name?
It started in 1910 when local citizens in a southern Indiana town rich in German – American heritage, Jasper, IN, formed our company. We still follow the same values our original founders established 108 years ago: trust, integrity, lasting relationships, high standards, being community focused and helping people to create brighter futures. We have grown significantly through the years, and now German American Bank is highly regarded in the States of Indiana and Kentucky, and throughout the country, as a premiere financial services company with a successful community banking model. We feel our values, and our name, are good reminders of our humble beginnings as we continue to help our customers and our communities create the future.
