After serving the Northeast Nebraska area for 78 years, Elkhorn Valley Bank & Trust is crossing the river with the opening of a branch in Yankton, South Dakota. Located at 114 Douglas Avenue, Suite 5, the Yankton location is staffed with knowledgeable and experienced staff. “We are excited about our opportunity to serve the financial needs of Yankton and its surrounding communities. We have an outstanding team in Lynn, Erik, Heather, Nancy, and Taylor who bring decades of banking experience in the Yankton market,” said Elkhorn Valley Bank’s Chief Executive Officer Aaron Otten. The employees in Yankton may be new to Elkhorn Valley Bank but are no strangers to the city. Having served Yankton for many years, the staff has established meaningful relationships in the community. Taylor Reining, New Accounts Representative has found, “the people that know us at the Yankton branch know how incredible our team is and that we would do anything for our customers.”


Despite tremendous growth throughout the years, Elkhorn Valley Bank continues to keep the customer and their financial needs at the center of every decision. “Being a family owned, community focused bank with $1 billion in total assets, we can provide a unique banking experience offering a full range of products and services paired with the professional, personalized service that you can only get from a community bank,” continued Otten. Senior Vice President Erik Koenigs explained, “Being in Yankton feels comfortable, our customers know us and that this branch offers outstanding service and competitive products.”


Yankton Market President Lynn Peterson feels, “the new bank offers the Yankton area more options and competition. When banks compete, the customer wins. Elkhorn Valley Bank offers competitive products and services with the most modern banking technology.” Even better yet, Elkhorn Valley Bank offers “local staff that understands the Yankton market and supports the agricultural and business community through activism,” continued Peterson.


The Yankton branch has seen a steady flow of new customers as well as familiar faces. “The community has embraced and supported EVB more than I could have imaged,” said Peterson. Elkhorn Valley Bank & Trust focuses on providing exceptional banking service while also giving back to the communities in which they work and live. “Elkhorn Valley Bank strongly supports all the communities they serve, and Yankton is no exception. EVB and its employees are proud to be a part of Yankton,” stated Peterson. “We look forward to building strong relationships and supporting Yankton and surrounding areas for years to come,” agreed Otten.
