Midwest BankCentre is a fast-growing, progressive community bank with enduring traditions and values. Founded as Lemay Bank & Trust Company, Midwest BankCentre’s long history of serving St. Louis began in 1906. Since then, the bank has maintained its commitment to the community, changed its name to more accurately reflect its regional focus, and continually enhanced its products and services to serve the times.

Midwest BankCentre’s experienced management team is 100 percent centered on the community and the bank’s customers. Supported by an accomplished management team and more than 300 dedicated team members, Chairman and CEO Jim Watson oversees the operations of one of St. Louis’s most innovative and customer-focused banking institutions. Today, Midwest BankCentre is grateful for the many St. Louis area households that call Midwest “my bank.” With sixteen locations and $1 billion in deposits, Midwest BankCentre is a big community bank with small-town spirit. 

To ensure it remains steadfast in its focus on people, the bank has adopted the following statements of Vision, Core Purpose, and Core Values and strives to live every day according to these values:

  • Vision: To be the best place to bank, the best place to work and a top-performing community bank.
  • Core Purpose: To make others successful.
  • Core Values:
    • Heroic customer service (external and internal).
    • Relationship building and community development is the foundation of our business.
    • Encourage self starters, self improvement, and independence with accountability.
    • Our team members are the source of our strength—treat them well, develop them, and expect a lot.
    • Commit to success, yet keep it fun.
