Heartland Bank breaks ground in Jefferson
16 May 2021
Heartland Bank broke ground May 12 on its new 4,600-square foot office building in the 1700 block of N. Elm St in Jefferson.
Heartland Bank opened on the northeast corner of Jefferson’s downtown square in February 2020. There are now five fulltime employees there, led by Scott Weber, business development officer.
Kevin Black, president and CEO of the company, reported that despite opening just one month prior to the Covid-19 pandemic arriving in Iowa, the Jefferson office’s first year was very successful. He explained why the bank decided to open a Jefferson location, saying, “One of the things that really stood out was the leadership and vision in the community. That’s what it takes to keep a community going That’s one of the biggest reasons we came here.”
