Our Story

Hello, Neighbor

At Village Bank, we believe you are a neighbor, not a number, and that dedication to serve shows in everything we do. From the uniquely personal attention we give every individual and business to the time we spend volunteering in our community, Village Bank is far more than just another bank. It is a place where the power of friendship, community, and people working together toward a common goal is alive and prospering.

Our History

In 1999, a few dedicated people had a vision for Village Bank. Watching out-of-state banks moving into Richmond and diluting the local banking community, this group decided to create a Richmond bank, locally owned and operated by individuals who have the same concerns for their community as you do. Over the years, the Bank has expanded to meet the needs of the community and today serves our customers with 10 branch locations, a full-service Mortgage Corporation and an experienced and passionate team of Business Bankers who solve problems and build businesses. 

Pet Friendly

Pets are welcome inside our branches. In fact, when you visit one of our locations, you may see an excited dog greeting customers and giving kisses to our employees. This is Banks, a golden retriever with an enthusiastic personality. When we met her, we just had to make her our spokesdog, due to her personality, loyalty, and good work ethic—a perfect fit to help promote Village Bank and its efforts to better the Richmond area.

Come meet Banks. We’ve yet to find someone immune to her charm!

Banks is trained and loved by Cindy Briggs, owner of All Dog Adventures in Richmond's North Side and a Village Bank Business Customer. Banks has won many agility competitions and received her MACH (Master Agility Dog Champion) designation in 2009.
