First National Bank of Omaha finds strength in a growing branch network

We've all seen the headlines sounding the death knell for bank branches, with experts citing the rise in digital banks and nonbank competitors, the prevalence of banking via our phones, as well as the costs incurred to maintain the branch infrastructure as reasons for the impending demise.

And though First National Bank of Omaha has seen a significant increase in electronic transactions in recent years among our customers, we continue to experience a considerable amount of branch traffic.

Digital (including web- and mobile-enabled) visits by our customers grew 12.7 percent in 2016 to 77.4 million. Despite this, our branch presence remains important, as we also processed more than 8 million branch transactions in 2016. Two new branches, opened last year in Overland Park, Kansas, and Grand Island, Nebraska, have both outperformed expectations.

A recent survey published by the American Bankers Association supports the continued interest our company sees in maintaining a strong branch presence.
