Our History

In 2008, the Central Bancorp leadership team looked to expand the suite of financial services it offered to its community. Heading just a few hours south, the leadership team found its next endeavor with the acquisition of Farmers & Stockmens Bank, based in Clayton, New Mexico. One year later, Central Bank & Trust opened its downtown Colorado Springs doors as a branch of Farmers & Stockmens Bank. And in early 2020, Central Bank & Trust opened its second Colorado location in the Denver Tech Center.

With almost a century of experience under its belt, Farmers & Stockmens provided a stable banking platform from which to open and grow Central Bank & Trust here in Colorado. Eleven years later, Central Bank & Trust has become the preeminent SBA lender in El Paso County and continues to be a thought leader in the financial world.

The seamless integration of both banks under the Central Bancorp family enables us to provide our clients with above-and-beyond service, expertise, and resources. Many customers choose our banks because of the individualized, responsive service that goes hand-in-hand with the relationships our bankers seek to establish with our clients.

Central Bank & Trust and Farmers & Stockmens Bank are managed by their own staffs of local employees, branch managers, and market presidents.
