Since Harry Kujawa founded Farmers & Merchants bank in 1940, there has been a Kujawa family member leading the bank's vision and serving its customers.
Harry's son John returned to Berlin to work at the bank in 1961 after earning a degree in Finance & Banking from Marquette University and serving in the US Army. When Harry passed away in 1989, John was elected bank President.

Today, John, Catherine, Paul and Peter work together to fulfill their father & grandfather's vision of serving their customers and community like family.
