At Great Western Bank, banking isn’t just about financials and bottom lines. And, it's more than just a checking account or a loan. It’s a long-term personal relationship built around you and your needs.

To us, banking is about improving the quality of life for the people and communities we serve. That's why our philosophy is to Make Life Great for our customers, our co-workers, our communities and everyone with whom we do business. Some of our core values are honesty, integrity and respect, and they remain the moral standards that we hold ourselves to.

We're proud to offer great products and services to help you live the life you want to live. And, we recognize that we constantly have to grow our business to continue offering our customers new and cutting-edge products and services. To accomplish this goal we have a growth structure in place to ensure that Great Western Bank is expanding to better serve our current and future customer base.  And, with convenient locations in seven states, no matter where life takes you, we’re always on your way.
