Mid America Bank has seen tremendous growth in its 107-year history in Central Missouri. Originally chartered as The People’s Bank of St. Thomas in 1914, the bank’s name was changed to Mid America Bank in 1983 to better reflect its expansion into a new market with the opening of a second branch location in Linn, MO. Since that time, Mid America Bank has expanded with an additional four branch locations in Wardsville, Holts Summit, Belle, and their most recent branch addition located at the corner of West Stadium Boulevard and West Edgewood Drive in Jefferson City.
Over the years, Mid America Bank has served the Jefferson City market without a physical location within the city limits of Jefferson City. This all changed in 2020, as Mid America Bank opened a new branch office at one of the community’s busiest intersections, 1200 West Stadium Boulevard and West Edgewood Drive. The full-service branch offers a universal banking model with drive-thru teller windows, ATM, night depository and staffed with personal bankers and lenders to assist customers.
As the Central Missouri area continues to expand its economic growth, it, in turn, creates opportunities for financial institutions to increase their market share. Mid America Bank continues to be conscious of the expanding rural markets as demonstrated by the opening of branch locations within smaller populated communities. After years of planning, Jefferson City became home to a new branch location, with a banking lobby and administration offices on the first floor coupled with corporate offices on the second floor. The sixth branch will allow Mid America Bank to provide expanded customer service and will house fifteen staff members, in addition to their eighty existing employees.
“We are extremely excited to have a branch location in Jefferson City,” said Mark Luebbert, President of Mid America Bank. “Although we have been serving the Jefferson City market for many years, we wanted a stronger presence within the community and our new location will now offer that to our existing and future customers.”
Mid America Bank’s recent investment is one of many examples of economic growth and sustainability being exhibited by the greater business community. The Jefferson City Area Chamber of Commerce greatly appreciates Mid America Bank’s continued service and financial commitment to the greater Jefferson City community.
