Cornhusker Bank broke ground for its new $13 million center at 8310 O Street on May 1st.
Cornhusker Bank Chairman, John Dittman and President/CEO, Barry Lockard presided over the ceremony for invited guests, signaling the start of construction for the 55,000 square foot building. Mayor Chris Beutler, along with Wendy Birdsall, President of Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, made comments during the ceremony. Representatives of Sampson Construction Company, Sinclair Hille Architects, and Brehm Enterprises were also represented at the ceremony. Expected completion date is late summer of 2016.
The building will house a complete suite of services, including corporate offices, retail banking, commercial lending, small business services, private banking, wealth management and insurance. The bank’s operations and information technology departments will also be housed at this location. Synergies created by bringing together different departments of the bank will facilitate an enhanced experience for customers and associates. Mr. Lockard noted the addition of the new banking center at 84th and O Street will allow Cornhusker Bank to continue to expand and elevate its extraordinary customer service. The bank’s 11th and Cornhusker location will remain a fully staffed, full service branch, continuing to be a convenient location for the northwest quadrant of the community.
Cornhusker Bank remains Lincoln’s oldest locally owned bank, demonstrating hometown heart, stability, soundness and continued commitment to the success of its valued customers and associates.
