Values and Vision
Planning for Springfield First Community Bank (SFC Bank) began in the spring of 2008, as local business leaders began hearing from individuals about the need for a community bank in Springfield. Those individuals became shareholders as they gathered what would be the largest opening bank capital in the history of Springfield, and those leaders became organizers as they co-opted perhaps what would become the strongest community bank management team and delivery platform in city history.
The bank opened October 24, 2008. Over its first decade of operation, SFC experienced overwhelming success and growth, surpassing $500 million in assets and ranked 8th in deposit market share in the community. In July 2018, Springfield Bancshares, Inc., the holding company of SFC Bank of Springfield, Missouri completed a merger with QCR Holdings, Inc. With the addition of SFC Bank, QCR Holdings has 27 locations in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri. As of July 1, 2018, QCR Holdings had approximately $4.7 billion in assets, $3.6 billion in loans and $3.7 billion in deposits.
SFC Bank’s local management and decision making, along with its separate charter and brand within the Springfield, Missouri market, remains unchanged. As part of the QCR Holdings family, SFC is now even better positioned to continue growing its franchise and expand its products and services.
Our goal at SFC Bank is to be the leading financial institution in our area, achieved through relationship driven customer service and superior financial strength and performance. We are dedicated to meeting the financial needs of our surrounding community and exceeding the expectations of our customers, team members, shareholders, and board of directors.
Our Directors are Jim Anderson (Chairman), Jan Baumgartner, Bob Beine, Kirk Bossert, Brent Davis, Rob Fulp, Doug Hultquist, Larry Lipscomb (Vice-Chairman), Monte McNew, Charlie O’Reilly, Tim O’Reilly, and John Youngblood.
