First Community Bank / Milton Adds Dedicated Agriculture Lender With Deep Local Roots

MILTON – First Community Bank Milton is pleased to announce it recently hired Ellen Hunter as Ag and Business Loan Officer. An industry veteran and Milton High School graduate, Hunter represents the latest commitment by FCB to passionately serve the local community and its agricultural leaders.

Founded as Farmers Bank, FCB has been serving the local community and its agricultural leaders for more than 110 years.

"I was born and raised in Milton, and knowing this bank and the history here, that drew me back to where I grew up,” Hunter said. “Having that small community supporting local, whether that’s business or farms, that’s what they care about.”

A graduate of University of Wisconsin-Platteville in Agricultural Business, Hunter has spent nearly a decade in banking, the majority of that time in lending, with a focus on agriculture. She brings direct knowledge and experience in working with Farm Service Agency (FSA) loans.

“I am excited to be part of a bank that’s from a small community and that really truly does care about its customers,” Hunter said. “Keeping that farm in your family, keeping that generational farm going – our family owned community bank cares about your operation and its success.”

“We are excited to add Ellen on our team and look forward to introducing her to our long-time and soon to be clients over the coming months” says Brendon Wilkinson, President and CEO. “Ellen brings the experience and dedication to client satisfaction that will help the bank continue to grow well into the future.”

Hunter is a Milton FFA Alumni member and still actively volunteers locally for 4H, including at the Rock County 4H Fair.

First Community Bank’s agricultural services include lines of credit, real estate and term loans and special loan programs. The bank also offers a full line of business services, included but not limited to lines of credit, term loans, letters of credit and special loan programs.
