“As we near the end of our 100th year in business, First National is reflecting on our past and looking towards the future,” said Board Chair and CEO Betsy Lawer. “Since 1922, our priority has been to provide essential financial services and support to the communities we serve. That will remain our focus for the next 100 years and beyond.

“We are so grateful to our fellow Alaskans who voted First National one of the best financial institutions in the state. We couldn’t have reached 100 years without you. Thank you.”

Alaska’s community bank since 1922, First National proudly helps Alaskans shape a brighter tomorrow by providing banking services to meet their needs across the state, nation and around the world.
