About Us


Country Bank, the Prescott area’s only locally owned and operated bank, opened in February of 2003 after realizing the desire of numerous community members for a bank with local decision making, staffed with experienced bankers.

M. P. “Brut” Brutinel, Previous Chairman/CEO, whose banking roots date back to 1961 in Prescott, gathered an able and experienced Board of Directors consisting of Ben Andre, Bill Fain, John Turner and Paul Roberts to guide the bank. Along with Steve Burton, Previous Senior Vice President/Chief Credit Officer, he had revived a nearly forgotten way of banking—a common sense philosophy, friendly, personalized service and a “can do” attitude.

Country Bank is a full service, technologically up-to-date bank, offering commercial, consumer and residential mortgage lending along with a wide variety of services and deposit accounts.
