First International Bank & Trust Receives top Honors at Banky™ Awards

Bringing home a total of eight titles

First International Bank & Trust was just named among the top extraordinary banks in the United States by The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™.

We were recognized with the Institute´s highest and most exclusive honor, being inducted into the Hall of Fame, for exemplary commitment to community banking.

In addition, we were recognized with the Institute´s Banky™ Award. This recognition is given to top community banks across the country to help people find the best banks in their communities. We were also recognized with awards for company culture, community giving, and extraordinary bank practices.

The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards recognize the best of what community banks offer to our cities, towns, and nation: a true commitment to the success of the small businesses and local community they serve.

Roxanne Emmerich, Chair and Founder of The Institute for Extraordinary Banking, proclaimed during the awards ceremony: "Community banks are the backbone of America: They are what keeps a community thriving. When a community bank leaves a community, small businesses often struggle to stay, and jobs leave. Every robust community has a strong community bank that understands how to help that community thrive and grow."
