In an era when consolidations and mergers of banks are the rule, BankCherokee continues its long tradition as an independent, family-owned bank. This cherished tradition ensures that BankCherokee is able to respond to the unique needs of the communities it serves with a high level of service and personal attention. At BankCherokee, we succeed by helping our customers succeed. We are proud to be values-driven, relationship-focused, family-oriented, and community engaged. Heidi Gesell marks the third generation of her family to lead BankCherokee and serves as the bank's president and CEO.
