Frequently Asked Questions

Sunset Bank & Savings is being acquired by PSB Holdings, Inc. (parent company of Peoples State Bank). Customers and employees of Sunset Bank & Savings will merge into and be operated as Peoples State Bank after a full brand conversion in June of 2021.

The Sunset Bank & Savings Board of Directors had a desire to provide liquidity for shareholders and more opportunities for employees by selling to another community bank. The board, as well as Mr. Bob Eastman as Chairman and CEO, believes Peoples is the best fit to carry on the tradition of local community banking in Waukesha.

Peoples was started in 1962 by local citizens in Wausau looking to provide small businesses and individuals with a community bank that would make local decisions based on their needs. Today we have 11 locations across central, northern and southeastern WI. PSB stock is traded under the stock symbol PSBQ on the OTCQX market and the majority of our shareholders are local residents.

Our vision at Peoples is to be the community bank that all others strive to be and we aspire to this vision with our financial strength, community focus, and award-winning service. Learn more about the Peoples story here.
