New name, same great bank. Let's make the connection!
why is the bank changing its name?
Wells Bancshares, Inc. is purchasing Connections Bancshares, Inc. and in the 4th quarter of 2023 it will merge their two banks together. Management takes pride in being a community bank and with Wells Bank having a similar name to a large corporate bank who does not share the same community bank values, management has decided to push forward with the name Connections Bank.
