Unison Bank, previously known as Stutsman County State Bank, will celebrate its 55th year as a full-service community bank in Jamestown, according to Kelly Rachel, bank president and CEO.

The bank has added the words "55 years strong" to its logo in honor of the milestone.

The bank operates in two locations including its headquarters in Jamestown and another bank in Gilbert, Arizona. There are 37 people employed in North Dakota and 24 in Arizona.

Rachel said the bank "rebranded" in 2006 when it changed its name from Stutsman County State Bank to Unison Bank. It expanded operations into Arizona in 2017 and now operates the Gilbert bank from a newly constructed building providing the same community banking services there as in Jamestown.

"As a community bank, our number one priority is providing common-sense banking to our customers with a personal touch," Rachel said. "It is our strong values and community-minded approach that has shaped this organization and are preparing us for an exciting future."


Rachel said Unison Bank has continued to grow over the years but continues to serve the communities of Jamestown and Gilbert.

"While still providing all the technology and services of large organizations, a community bank such as Unison can provide the personal service that customers want and deserve," Rachel said. "There are no call centers, but rather we have a great staff located right here in Jamestown ready to help you with whatever your banking needs might be.

"With 55 years of experience, Unison Bank is equipped to handle all your financial needs," he said, "and all decisions are made locally which is of great benefit to speed and efficiency in responding to customer requests."

Unison Bank was voted one of the 200 Healthiest Banks in America by the online rating company in 2019.
