CUSB Bank is proud to continue the tradition of throwing anniversary parties with its Kick Off To Summer Bash on June 2, 2018 in their Cresco location parking lot (Rain Location: Heritage Events Center.)

President and CEO J. Scott Thomson said, “My Dad, Jack, always loved throwing bank celebrations and had a great time showing his appreciation to our loyal customers. Now that Dad has passed away we want to keep this tradition going and want to fully celebrate 130 Years of CUSB Bank.”

Thomson shared that fourteen committee members have spearheaded the effort to plan the party and have been meeting since last Fall to plan for the celebration. He said, “I want to thank Brian McConnell, Katie Ferrie, Jodi Rosendahl, Dean Lickteig, Stephanie Gallagher, Amy Henry, Sally Peter, Lisa Johnson, Tammy Henderson, Holly Manske, Tammy Stevenson, Ronda Hughes, and my wife, Stephanie Thomson, for their detailed planning. Our dedicated employees are one of our greatest assets and I am proud of the event we have put together.”

All employees and the Board of Directors will be on hand to help with the festivities. Thomson shared, “We appreciate all employees coming to help with our big event, as they are CUSB Bank. We invite all of you to come and celebrate 130 years with the CUSB Bank family. We know you will love all of the festivities we have planned.”

CUSB Bank was established in 1888 and has stood in its same location in Cresco since then. The fourth generation of the Thomson Family is now running the bank. The bank’s history starts with our current President’s great grandfather, Robert Thomson. He was raised in Cumnock, Scotland, in a stone house with a dirt floor and a fireplace for cooking and heating. Robert worked in the steel mines and immigrated to the USA at age 20. He took a job as a clerk in a country bank to learn banking. Eventually he moved to Cresco, Iowa and started making pocket loans before helping to organize Cresco Union Savings Bank in 1888.
