Western States Bank to join with FNBO
A Message from Gary Crum, President
I’m excited to share that Western States Bank has entered into a definitive merger agreement with FNBO (fnbo.com), a sixth-generation family-owned bank headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska. You may be familiar with FNBO, as they have locations in Fort Collins, Colorado and Scottsbluff, Nebraska. While this merger may come as a surprise, we wholeheartedly believe this is a positive advancement for both our employees and customers.
Our merger with FNBO is subject to regulatory approval and other closing conditions, and we expect it to be final early next year. Ultimately, all our locations will operate as FNBO and offer their products and services. While I’m sure you have questions, please know that they will be answered over the coming weeks and months. Most importantly, take comfort in knowing our organization is now joining a fellow community-focused, privately owned bank that prides itself on local decision making and doing what’s in the best interest of its customers and communities.
Thank you for your support of Western States Bank and please join me in celebrating our future as a part of FNBO.
