Banks combine

First Collinsville Bank and First County Bank, which is also known as FCB Banks, have decided to merge under the FCB Banks name.

“This change formally combines our two banks together and streamlines operations under one name, FCB Banks, the name we have been known as for decades,” said bank President Mark Zavaglia in a statement.

He said customers will experience no change in their banking services.

“This will also simplify the online and mobile banking experience and streamline service for our customers at all 14 locations,” Zavaglia said. “We are constantly looking for ways to improve service to our customers.”
