About First National Bank Southwest

First National Bank Southwest has a history of doing what's right for our customers and the communities we serve. Founded in 1857, in the spirit of innovation and commitment to customer service, this sixth generation family-owned business has become the largest privately-owned bank holding company in the United States.

We've been building relationships in Texas since 2000, proudly serving the Collin County community. With locations in Nebraska, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Texas, $20 billion in assets and nearly 5,000 employee associates, we haven't lost sight of the foundation on which our success was built. Integrity, Respect, Passion - these are the cornerstones of our Operating Philosophy and represent our commitment to you. At First National Bank Southwest, we strive to better serve you and your banking needs - and we are as hopeful and excited about the future of our bank as our founders were.
