Stockman Bank will open a branch bank at 1 Main St. in Kalispell later this year.

The Montana-based bank is also adding a Whitefish location that’s expected to be ready for use by the end of next year.

Joe Kola, Flathead market president, said in a press release that Stockman is excited to bring its unique brand of Montana community banking to the Flathead Valley. “Stockman is a private, family-owned, community bank focused on meeting the financial needs of all Montanans,” Kola said. “We are looking forward to opening this new office in Kalispell where we can serve our existing Flathead customers and welcome new customers.”

The new banking office is undergoing some renovation and is scheduled to open by the end of the year.

“Once we’re open, we’ll be able to help customers with personal and business accounts and loans, along with home loans,” stated Kola. In the meantime, personal checking and savings accounts can be opened online at

Kola said hiring is his next priority for the new office.

“I am looking for bankers dedicated to putting their customers at the center of all they do,” he said. “At Stockman, we are well known for our commitment to providing exceptional customer service along with our strong community involvement, and a well-trained and competent workforce.”
