Since February of 1982, Valley National Bank has been a locally owned and independent financial institution that has served customers in Northeast Oklahoma and beyond. Our deep roots in the community and commitment to personal service have enabled us to grow alongside our customer base, creating conveniences and solutions to fit each individual’s specific problems and lifestyles.
In 1982, the broad adoption of internet banking and smartphones was decades away. Back then, the decision on where to bank was based mostly on relationships and the convenience of branch locations. Enterprise IT systems were emerging, and as a result, a new focus on delivering innovative banking solutions, such as the drive-thru and ATM, was born.
Since that time, rapid advancements in technology and business have drastically changed what people want from banks, and what banks can do for people. And while digital and mobile solutions have become the driver of access and convenience, personal relationships have never been more valuable in terms of service, expertise, and creative problem-solving. There still isn't an app for that.
“National banks typically focus on developing digital experiences, while regional and community banks focus on solutions built around people. But we think there’s a better way, so we’re positioning ourselves to do both, extremely well.”
– Brad Scrivner, President and CEO
This is why we are becoming Vast, a name that reflects our ever-evolving mission to serve our customers throughout their entire banking journey by building the best digital tools and providing the greatest in-person experiences when and where they matter most.
