First National Bank has been in the Omaha area for more than 150 years supporting local causes and events, helping large and small businesses succeed in an ever-changing financial climate, providing everyday banking services to families and individuals and being a major employer in the metro area. Founded in 1857, FNB originally served Omahaand surrounding communities. The bank has grown to be the largest privately owned banking company in the U.S. And while FNB has grown large (36 locations in the Omaha/Lincoln area and 114 ATMs in Omaha alone), its commitment to avoiding a one-size-fits-all approach has allowed it to foster a community of dedicated and consistently pleased customers. The bank has worked to create an environment that encourages quality customer service; it’s this effort that keeps FNB customers loyal. “First National has been here for 153 years,” says FNB Director of Public Relations Kevin Langin. “So really, when people think of Omaha they think of First National Bank. The company is founded on quality service and superior products. We do that by having customer commitment that employees must follow when dealing with customers.” FNB has made a name for itself by striving to be a good employer. First National of Nebraska, the holding company of which FNB is a subsidiary, employees over 5,000 associates. FNB was voted one of “The 100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” by Working Mother magazine, a distinction it has managed to maintain for eight straight years, and has also been recognized by Computerworld magazine as among “the best companies to work in IT” and also as one of the top three “Green IT” companies. FNB has also received the Well Workplace Platinum award from The Wellness Councils of America and the Nebraska Governor’s Excellence in Wellness Award. FNB has given much to the Omaha area, including a new addition to a somewhat lackluster skyline with First National Tower, which at 633 feet is the tallest building between Chicago and Denver. A proud sponsor of our beloved University of Nebraska athletics, FNB is sure to remain a vital part of our local community.
