About


The Bank Behind Your Business

We know what it’s like to put your heart and soul into the success of your venture. We know because we’ve been there. In 1995, Jim Leventis and Mike Crapps founded First Community Bank on the belief that local business owners deserved a better financial partner, one that would truly match their stride and invest in their long-term growth.

From our original banking offices in Lexington and Forest Acres to more than 20 locations and 250 employees, we remain committed to the belief that everyone matters and service is essential to all we do. More than 25 years later, we’re still energized by our customers’ drive and ingenuity, and we know our success is a reflection of your achievement. We’re proud to walk with you.
