About Us

Humble Beginnings

In 1904, Stock Yards Bank was formed to finance transactions in the livestock industry. Today, we help individuals, families, and businesses with a complete line of financial services with our unique focus on personal banking. It’s not new—in fact, we call it “banking, the way it used to be.”

A Letter from James A. (Ja) Hillebrand, Chairman & CEO:

Welcome to our website.

Once you get to know us, you’ll find a bank that has an impressive history that began in 1904. During this time, Stock Yards Bank has earned a solid reputation for personal service, financial strength, and a commitment to the highest standards of business ethics. We’ve developed a full range of financial services to meet the needs of each of our customers, regardless of the size or complexity of their needs. We’ve built our business in the simplest and most straightforward way possible – one account at a time, relationship by relationship.

Our mission statement calls for providing unsurpassed service to our customers and a great place to work for our employees. Our commitment to this philosophy is a key reason our parent company, Stock Yards Bancorp, a publicly traded company (NASDAQ:SYBT), has consistently ranked as one of the country’s top-performing community banks and been recognized as one of the "Best Banks to Work For.”

Thanks again for visiting our website. I hope you will explore the wealth of information available. If you are an investor, please check our investor pages for a detailed look at our financial performance, stock facts, and corporate governance information.
