LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 19, 2018) — Over the last 110 years, PBI Bank has served clients across the commonwealth to meet their personal, business, agriculture, and equine banking needs. In the first weeks of 2018, leadership at PBI Bank decided it was time to adapt the bank’s name and visual identity to set the tone for the years to come.
The new name, Limestone Bank, is derived from the rock found across much of Kentucky. Not only is limestone used in construction materials, but it’s also used in horse feed by many of the bank’s equine clients as a strong source of supplemental calcium. Aside from these two connections, John Taylor, president & CEO of PBI Bank, suggests yet another.
“Many of our team members know first-hand the financial needs of businesses, farmers, and horse owners and breeders, and we’ve been able to build sturdy relationships with our clients because of that knowledge,” Taylor said. “Our focus on building strong relationships is central to who we are and who we strive to be every day.”
Even though the name and logo will change, PBI Bank hasn’t been purchased, and current clients will keep their account numbers and information.
“We know that this change might raise a few questions, but we’re still the same bank,” Taylor said. “We’re simply changing our name and logo to reinvigorate our promise to help our clients build firm financial futures.”
PBI Bank customers will receive communications with further details about the name change in the coming weeks. Community members will also be invited to a special event occurring at their local branches on Feb. 20, which is the date the name change will be effective.
