Posted on Thursday, July 7, 2022 in Recent News


AMES, IOWA (July 7, 2022) – First National Bank (FNB), headquartered in Ames, Iowa, is announcing that it will be hosting a Grand Opening Ceremony at its Valley Junction branch at 301 5th Street, West Des Moines, Iowa, on Monday, July 18, 2022.

The ribbon-cutting event is co-hosted by the West Des Moines Chamber of Commerce and will be held at 3 p.m. After the ceremony, FNB will host an open house for its customers and the community until 5 p.m. Refreshments and giveaways will be provided.

The Valley Junction branch reopened on June 27 in its newly constructed building. Previously at the same location, the original bank building was razed to make way for the new branch, which is fashioned with a bright and sleek design. The openness of the space provides a welcoming, community feel that integrates well into the historic downtown.

“Reimaging FNB’s presence in Valley Junction is a departure from the traditional branch design of the old bank. The aim has been to create an environment that facilitates conversations and customer relations, rather than transactions. We want everyone in the community to feel comfortable coming in and having a conversation with us. We also offer the latest video banking technology that extends our banking hours,” said Branch Manager Jason Keigley.   

FNB President Scott T. Bauer said, “We are excited for the on-going opportunity to be part of a vibrant, growing Valley Junction community and to deliver What Banking Should Be.”

“We look forward to delivering solutions for our customers and communities in an area that echoes our people-first approach to banking,” said West Des Moines Market President Dean Whitaker.

First National Bank offers in-person, online, mobile banking, drive-up, and video banking services for customers, providing 24/7 account access. The Valley Junction’s team is ready to serve both personal and business banking customers that make Valley Junction and the entire West Des Moines area a great place to live and work.
