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 20 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.
That everyone matters. That, when it comes to growth, a strong work ethic is as valuable as a shrewd financial eye. That honesty and integrity are the cornerstones of smart business. That excellence is a standard to be achieved, not a goal to be aspired toward. And that a spirit of service is essential to all we do.
