“HTLF brings our future to life and captures where we’re going. It reinforces the strength and stability of our company and our banks,” said Laura Hughes, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer. “The brand was developed with the amazing creative team at Gigantic Design, a Dubuque, Iowa-based agency. It tested positively with multiple stakeholders – employees, customers and investors.”

HTLF’s unique model powers its banks with technology, efficiency and strength. Decision making is local and focused on customers and relationships. This is community banking with the scale to compete at any level.
