First National Community Bank family grew to 4 branches with the acquisition of the Frandsen Bank in DresserNovember 26th, 2014 - By admin
In October of 2014, the First National Community Bank family grew to 4 branches with the acquisition of the Frandsen Bank in Dresser, Wisconsin, just 4 miles north of Osceola. This acquisition grew the Community minded bank to approximately 70 employees overall. Thomas Mews, President of First National Community Bank stated, “We are excited to be able to expand our community bank presence.
The Dresser location brings added convenience to our customer base which is primarily St. Croix, Polk and Pierce Counties. In addition, bank customers will continue to be served by the existing staff they have come to trust, along with the addition of Jennifer Suit as the Branch Manager in Dresser. Jennifer has been a valued employee of First National Community Bank for nearly ten years and will continue to offer the service and commitment that our customers are accustomed to and deserve.”
In closing, Mews shared, “This is the first acquisition the bank has undergone and is a testament to the commitment to grow and sustain our community owned and operated bank…while we are increasing the asset base for the bank, our greatest assets are our employees. Without a strong team, we would not have been able to even consider this!”
Over the years, the bank has worked with hundreds of organizations raising awareness for a variety of causes. Currently, FNCB is collecting new hats, mittens and scarves for its’ annual “Mitten Drive“, along with an annual food drive to benefit St. Croix and Polk Counties. Donations for both the food drive and the mitten drive can be delivered to any of the four FNCB locations.
We are also thrilled to be working hand-in-hand with the New Richmond Area Centre this holiday season for Breakfast with Santa on Saturday, December 20th, 2014. The event is sponsored by FNCB in partnership with the Centre as another opportunity to bring the New Richmond community together. Children will be able to have their picture taken with Santa and a FREE pancake breakfast can be enjoyed by the whole family!
First National Community Bank and their staff also looks forward to being a sponsor for the Christmas Tour of Homes in Hudson, the Light Up Osceola holiday event, the annual Holiday Business After 5 on December 18th, New Richmond Chamber Coffee on December 12th, and more!
