Somerset Trust Company is a community bank serving the people of Somerset County and the greater Johnstown area. The bank provides complete financial services to its customers through a network of branch offices, extensive ATM locations and an award-winning online banking service.
Since its formation in 1889 by Congressman Edward Scull and his son George R. Scull, the bank has grown and prospered. George S. Cook, great grandson of the Congressman, served for 34 years as the bank’s president, CEO and chairman of the board. In retirement, he continued to serve on the bank’s board of directors and remained active in community endeavors. Today, his son, G. Henry Cook, heads the institution. Other sons, Thomas J. Cook and Andrew Cook, are integral members of the bank’s senior management team.
In May 2000, Somerset Trust Holding Company was formed with the bank being its only subsidiary. The bank places an emphasis on delivering superior customer service and improving internal efficiencies especially utilizing technology.
