TS Bank’s roots are firmly planted in the Loess Hills.
The bank, headquartered in Treynor with eight locations in central and southwestern Iowa, will celebrate the centennial of its bank charter next year. TS Bank is planning several big announcements in the coming months, but is now celebrating its nomination as the #1 bank by Nonpareil readers in the 2022 Reader’s Choice Awards.
“We believe TS Bank exists to drive long-term customer and community prosperity by helping people Do more with their money,” said Kelsey Stupfell, director of public relations. “We are honored to be nominated for the Nonpareil Reader’s Choice Awards and would like to express a huge thank you to those who voted for all of the companies that were recognized.
TS Bank decided several years ago to reinvest 10% of its net income back into the communities it serves.

“We do this through our financial literacy efforts, educational events, and by supporting other organizations and nonprofits,” Stupfell said. “I know that the harder we work, the more we are able to give back as a company to our community. Knowing that we are working towards something bigger than ourselves makes our efforts truly worthwhile.”
Since 2007, the bank has granted nearly $5 million to community efforts.
The bank’s culture — originally established by Mick and Judy Guttau over the past 40 years — is thriving, she said.
“We encourage others to live generously and pay it forward,” Stupfell said. “We’ve grown tremendously and consider ourselves ‘more than a bank.’ Now we not only offer personal and business banking and lending, but also tax services, generational wealth planning, investments and more. “
Stupfell said recognition from Nonpareil readers comes from hardworking TS Bank employees, who work with “dedicated community members and incredible customers”. She also congratulated the other Reader’s Choice recipients.
“Congratulations to all of the 2022 recipients – we know a community is only as strong as its small businesses!” she says. “We really love Southwestern Iowa.”
Everyone at TS Bank is proud to work for an employer who plays a role in their shared success, whether through financial services or the bank’s giving initiatives. This is especially true in the region’s rural communities.
“TS Bank’s roots run deep in this incredible Loess Hills soil and beyond, as agriculture has been part of our history from the very beginning,” she said. “We believe in the power of small towns and love to see first-hand each community harnessing its local strength for positive change.”
