Vintage Bank Kansas finalizes acquisition, plans new site

Wink Hartman Sr. says his Vintage Bank Kansas has finalized its purchase of Peabody State Bank in Peabody.

This gives Vintage Bank just over $100 million in assets and five sites, in Peabody, Wichita, Conway Springs, Leon and Benton.

The bank also plans a new site in El Dorado next year.

“Vintage Bank Kansas looks forward to additional growth and serving our customers in each community,” Hartman said in an e-mail.

He said sound fiscal policy is what will make a stronger future.

“It’s time for Kansas to put the chemistry set back in the closet and stop experimenting.”
