Five “Best of Alaska Business” Awards bestowed on First National

Thousands of Alaska Business Monthly (ABM) magazine readers voted First National Bank Alaska the “Best of Alaska Business” for five categories in the publication’s 2017 survey.

For the second year in a row, the bank received the first place “Denali” award in the Best Place to Work in Alaska category. The bank also earned first place awards in four other categories: Customer Service, Corporate Citizen, Family-Owned Business and Alaska Ad Campaign.

“We are honored…and humbled, by this recognition,” said Betsy Lawer, Chair and President of the Alaska owned- and –operated bank. “It’s a tribute to our 670 employees statewide, who deliver superb customer service, Alaska style, day in and day out. Thank you.”

This is the first time the survey has one winner in five categories, said Jason Martin, ABM’s vice president and general manager. “Congratulations First National Bank Alaska, you are truly representative of what it takes to be the Best of Alaska Business,” he said.

Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMS and branches in 18 communities throughout the state. Visit for more information about Alaska’s largest locally owned bank and access to efficient and secure online banking services.
