Voted "Best Place to Work in Alaska" Seven Years Running

Alaska Business magazine readers voted First National the “Best Place to Work” in the Best of Alaska Business Awards for the seventh consecutive year.

“In 1922, First National opened with two employees and $500,000 in capital. Throughout the years, we’ve helped generations of Alaskans shape a brighter tomorrow,” said Board Chair and CEO/President Betsy Lawer. “Our incredible 600+ employees are the ones who have made it all possible. We couldn’t have reached our Centennial anniversary without them.

“I am so grateful to Alaskans who count First National as a Best Place to Work and look forward to seeing how our employees continue to foster a culture of success, no matter the obstacles, for the next 100 years and beyond. Thank you.”
