First National combining bank affiliates
OMAHA -- First National of Nebraska, parent company of First National Bank of Omaha, announced Wednesday it will file an application with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency to combine all Nebraska and South Dakota banking affiliates into one company.
The move involves bringing First National Bank of Omaha, First National Bank of Columbus, First National Bank North Platte, First National Bank South Dakota, Fremont National Bank & Trust Company and Platte Valley State Bank together as one.
"As one organization, instead of six, we can leverage the tradition of success that began 157 years ago in Omaha, offering all customers under the First National Bank brand better access to new products, customer service innovation and a banking experience more reflective of the changing needs and lifestyles of our customers," said Dan O'Neill, President of First.
First National of Nebraska, with $17 billion in assets, is the largest privately owned banking company in the United States.
