First Interstate Bank Merges With Great Western

May 25, 2022 (0)

First Interstate Bank Chamber ribbon cutting was held Monday, May 23. First Interstate Bank has merged with Great Western Bank with operations being turned over on Monday.

The merger deal that made Great Western Bank an operating division of First Interstate Bank became official Feb. 1, and the transition of First Interstate was May 23. 

The O'Neill and Atkinson Great Western Banks in Holt County officially opened on Monday under the name of First Interstate Bank.

First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. is a financial holding company headquartered in Billings, Montana. It is the parent company of First Interstate Bank, a community bank offering a full range of online, mobile and other banking and financial services. When Great Western converted to First Interstate Bank on May 23 customers have access to more than 300 banking offices across Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wyoming.

First Interstate's course was set by its founder, Homer Scott, Sr., who believed that people and organizations are not known by what they say but by what they do. From the time Mr. Scott purchased his first bank in 1968, through their growth over five decades, the First Interstate family has always adhered to a strong set of guiding principles and values.  

For now, it is business as usual at First Interstate Bank. Customers may continue their normal banking activities with the same bank staff they've come to know and trust in the same communities where they live and work.

The office in O'Neill is open with new faces operating the bank. New bank hours will also be coming to the O'Neill branch expanding their afternoon hours for their customer's convenience.
