“Chairman’s Club Spotlight”

As a member of the Evansville Chamber of Commerce, Steve Eager from State Bank of Cross Plains was chosen for a featured Chairman’s Club Spotlight.

State Bank of Cross Plains opened its doors in 1908. With the recent merge of UB&T we are now 14 locations strong serving customers in both Rock, Green and Dane County. We pride ourselves on being one of the largest community banks in the area while maintaining that personal small-town feel.
