Name Change Complete For Local Bank

(Le Mars) -- You may have noticed a name change with what was known as First National Bank. 
As of Monday, the bank is now known as Northwest Bank.   Northwest Financial Corporation,
one of Iowa's largest family-owned bank holding companies announces the merger of two of its
banks, First National Bank with offices in Sioux City, Le Mars, and Sioux Center and
Northwest Bank have been completed.  A news release states the joining of these two
organizations will provide additional products, services, and banking locations to the
entire customer base.  The expanded organization will be one of the 10 largest banks in
Iowa, with $1.3 billion in assets and over $123 million in capital, serving 13 of the 19
counties in northwest Iowa.  The transition will provide the operation with new growth
opportunities, and allow Northwest Bank to increase lending capabilities and provide new
products and services.  The change will also strengthen the bank's ability to re-invest into
its communities and employees. 
Kevin Eekhoff, President of Northwest Bank in Le Mars, says customers will be able to keep
banking the way they always have...maintaining the same account numbers and services.
