President’s Message

A Message from Joe Slavens, President & CEO

As Northwest Bank & Trust Company has grown over the decades, we owe it to you, our loyal customers and friends. Thank you for understanding the value of working with local professionals.  We are honored to have been able to serve the Quad Cities community for almost 80 years.

Other financial institutions have come and gone from our community, but Northwest Bank has a history of proven success dating back to 1941. Our deep roots and reputation speak not only to our longevity as a trusted financial institution, but also to our commitment to our customers and the development of our community.

Joe Slavens

The entire team here at Northwest Bank relies on a set of core values that have guided us from the beginning, to help our customers achieve better results. But, we’re also committed to the future.  Among other ways:

  • We will continue to broaden the ways we can serve you. Most recently, we added tax and accounting services.
  • Our Investment Management Group will continue to grow faster than our competition.
  • Each day our commercial lending department embraces the responsibility to develop and implement new and innovative ways to serve borrowers.

We have and will continue to set the pace when it comes to providing the products and services needed by our customers in every phase of life.

If you’re already a customer, thank you again for allowing us to serve you. If you haven’t given us a try, please accept this invitation to do business with us. I’m certain we’ll both be glad you did.
