United National Bank Changes Name to Bank United

Bank United for generationsEffective Monday, December 23, United National Bank of Russell and Natoma will change its name to Bank United.

United National Bank is currently a national bank regulated by the federal government. However, according to a recent press release, in the current banking environment, the bank's Board of Directors believes there are advantages to be gained from changing to a state chartered bank.

Bank President and CEO Vance Ruggels explains.

As part of the conversion to a state bank, a name change is required.

Ruggels reassures folks that the name is the only change.

It's not the first time the bank has changed its name. Originally chartered as First National Bank of Natoma in 1909, the opening of a new branch in Russell in 1991 required the name to change to United National Bank.

If you have any questions, contact the bank's Russell office at 785-483-2300 or the Natoma office at 785-885-4234.
