Our History

Our Founding

Triumph Community Bank got its start in 2001 with $90 million in assets and a passion for community banking. Originally named THE National Bank, the institution established its headquarters in Bettendorf, Iowa, at Duck Creek Shopping Center, and opened branches in Savanna and Mount Carroll, Illinois, from its merger with First Illinois National Bank.

Our Philosophy

Triumph Community Bank is an organization which calls for: 

  • Transparency
  • Respecting others
  • Investing in the future
  • Celebrating uniqueness
  • Understanding that the mission is more than making money
  • Acknowledging that people make the difference
  • Remaining humble

Plain and simple: We strive to do the right thing. That also includes how we serve our customers and provide them with financial solutions.

Growth and Expansion

In the ensuing years, the bank added branches in East Moline, Moline, Sterling, Canton and Havana, Illinois and in Davenport, Iowa. While already one of the fastest growing banks in the Midwest, in 2006 THE National Bank acquired Metrobank, headquartered in East Moline, Illinois, to become one of the Quad Cities' largest community-owned and -operated banks. Also in 2006, we opened a branch in the Fox River Valley region and, in 2010, built a LEED certified location in Elgin.

Triumph Bancorp acquired THE National Bank in October 2013. From a corporate perspective, this new association with Triumph strengthened our position against large, national banks. From a service perspective, it allows us to focus on taking care of you better than ever. Emphasizing our commitment to the people and businesses of the local community, we changed our name in 2014 to Triumph Community Bank.
