Landmark Bank was founded in August, 1897, and capitalized with $15,000 from local investors who recognized the need for the community to have a bank to call its own. The original management team of The Hon. D. W. Pipes (President), E. J. Buck (Vice President) and H. H. Forrestor (Cashier) established our commitment to personal service from the very day we opened our doors for business.
Through the years Landmark Bank has believed that the future of the Bank depends on the success and satisfaction of our customers each and every day. In 1999 The Board of Directors was proud to begin providing the Zachary community with these services by opening its first, full service branch at 20070 Plank Road. In December, 2011 the Greensburg branch was opened to serve the local community at 31 Kendrick Street. Then in January, 2019 the 1858 Church Street branch was opened in Zachary to serve both East and West side of Zachary.
Message from the President/CEO – Ben Cavin
At Landmark Bank, we continue to live our mission of service to our families and our communities through our work. We have lived this mission for more than 120 years and we are excited about the prospects that 2021 brings. 2020 was a challenging year, however our commitment to the communities we serve has not wavered. We participated in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), providing much needed support to small businesses, and we have continued this commitment with the second round of PPP funding. Despite all of the challenges we experienced in 2020 we continue to function as a strong and reliable source for financial support in these trying times. The COVID-19 Pandemic has been one of the most trying experiences in many of our lifetimes, however our commitment to service has never been greater. We have made extraordinary efforts in ensuring that we are focused on convenience and efficiency for our customers while making sure we never lose sight of our ultimate goal of providing a high level of customer satisfaction and service. While the world is getting bigger, our focus will continue to be on the individual, treating every customer interaction as the most important one of the day. We hope that you will consider a true community bank for your banking needs and hope you will always bank local, where relationships and handshakes still matter.
