First National Bank of Omaha History

bank 2

First National Bank of Omaha can trace its roots back to 1856, when a group of settlers crossed the Mississippi river and made camp in Nebraska. One of the group members, Thomas Davis, donated $600 in gold dust to found a new city charter; the city of Omaha. Later, two brothers, Augustus and Herman Kountze opened a bank in Omaha, appropriately named Kountze Brothers Bank. The company originally traded in gold, gold dust, and buffalo hides. bank 4

A second bank opened in 1863 and began doing business under the name of First National Bank of Omaha.

In 1913, the company opened up a separate department for women only so female clients would feel more comfortable in a business setting. Tellers were females who served their clients’ tea in a more home-like atmosphere.

The Great Depression caused more than 750 banks in Nebraska to close. First National not only met their customers demands for cash, they extended their hours and honored every withdrawal request, proving they were solvent. bank 5

In 1953, the company became the 5th bank to offer their own credit card.

In 2002 First National Bank was selected one of “America’s Best Companies for Working Mothers” according to Working Mother magazine, an honor that has been repeated annually due to on-site child development centers.

In 2003, the company was named “One of America’s Most Admired Companies” by peers at Fortune Magazine.

On February 22, 2018, the bank announced it would no longer renew its contract with the National Rifle Association as a result of customer feedback after a recent school shooting in Florida. The bank had offered special branded Visa cards to NRA members to support the group. This has resulted in a quite a bit negative criticism. bank 3

The company operates as a subsidiary of First National of Nebraska. Company headquarters is located in a 45 story skyscraper in downtown Omaha, Nebraska. bank 1

Please forward this complaint to Mr. Clarkson D. Lauritzen, Chief Executive Officer of First National Bank of Omaha.

I am a 2017 hurricane disaster victim that has struggled to get back to normal since 2017. I will be charged a late fee of $37 on my credit card at the closing of my billing cycle, which is March 19, 2018. Since that time, First National Bank of Omaha has issued credits to my account and I sincerely appreciate this. I was not aware that First National Bank of Omaha strictly required a payment to be paid via central time on my due date referencing my credit card. I have taken immediate steps to eliminate the problem via starting to pay my credit card bill online with a scheduled payment, but the bank’s website does not update immediately for me to perform this simple action that is a hindrance. I would like to feel there is no need to contact the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). First National Bank of Omaha presents to have a positive impact on the communities they serve and continue to harbor big dreams for the future of those communities served. My “GOD”, where is the humanity here?

Therefore, I would like to respectfully request an adjustment of $37 be returned to my credit card and ask that First National Bank of Omaha credit card department try to understand that a disaster does cause people to have struggles in life that are natural in occurrence and I am most certainly not just simply a customer that do not pay their bills on time.
