About Us

BankCherokee, providing you with quality service since 1908.

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.
