A Message from Clark D. Lauritzen, Chairman and President

I’m pleased to announce that FNBO has entered into a definitive merger agreement with Western States Bank (wsb.bank), pending regulatory approval. Western States Bank is headquartered in Wyoming and has a 10-branch network across Northern Colorado, Western Nebraska, and Southeastern Wyoming. We are enthusiastic to welcome Western States employees and customers to the FNBO family.

FNBO has a long, proud history of merging with financial institutions that share similar core values, ways of doing business, and approaches to serving customers and communities. Western States Bank complements these ideals, and we’re excited for the possibilities to expand our banking services into Wyoming while enhancing our presence in Northern Colorado and Western Nebraska.

Once the regulators issue their approval, we’ll begin the process of rebranding Western States Bank to FNBO and transitioning their employees and customers to our bank. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Western States employees and customers to the FNBO family.
