Great Western Bank history

Great Western Bank was organized in 1935, and has since welcomed thousands of banking relationships in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota. With assets over $9 billion and 158 banking locations, we’ve gained significant regional presence while Making Life Great in our communities.

Community, in fact, is a key word for us. Our employees engage in a wide range of community service, volunteering time, donating to local organizations, serving on the boards of civic and nonprofit organizations, and much more. We believe in helping children through education by partnering with public schools and providing scholarship funding, all to help strengthen the communities we serve.
