Back in 1938, the Great Depression took a toll on the people and the banks in Palmer, Nebraska. So brothers George and Tom Dinsdale, along with some friends, decided to do something. They pulled their resources together to open a bank for their community.
They ran their bank much like they ran their farms, and that genuine approach helped them earn the trust of their community. So it didn’t take long before they were ready to reach out to other towns and states. In the 60s and 70s, George’s sons Roy and Jack opened banks across Nebraska, then on to Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming.
With each new bank, their approach stayed the same. More than just bankers, they saw themselves as friends, neighbors and links in the community. People who did business with a handshake.
Banking has changed a lot over the years, but you’ll find our people today are still cut from the same cloth. Good people, running good banks, in good towns.
Although we make the latest conveniences available, like online and mobile banking, many of our customers still prefer to stop by one of our branches and talk to the bankers they know by name. We’re proud to be a part of our community, and consider customers our friends and neighbors.
We are now in seven states with 151 locations and over $11.6B in assets. And the next generations of Dinsdales are still actively involved, making sure each branch and each employee brings you banking The Way Banking Should Be.
