HHSB named a top ag lender in U.S.


HHSB was recently named a top agriculture lender by the Independent Community Bankers of America.

The bank earned a national ranking as the 11th best ag lender in the United States in the $300 million to $1 billion in assets category. They are one of just two Indiana banks to be named a top ag lender and the only Indiana bank in their asset size to receive this national recognition.

“Our ag lenders have deep roots in the farm community,” said Trent Smaltz, chief lending officer. “They understand the challenges of working the land and are dedicated to helping their customers’ ag operations grow strong. At the end of the day, we as banks all sell the same products for similar prices, but our customer service, beneficial relationships, and added value as experienced farmers and lenders are what differentiate our team.”

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the top ag lenders in the country,” said Brad Monts, president and CEO. “We believe that farming is a business built on relationships, and we are committed to supporting farmers, their families, and the ag-affiliated businesses in our community. We are grateful to our customers for entrusting their farm financial needs to HHSB.”
