Stockman Bank is celebrating 70 years in business.

All bank locations are holding a 70th Anniversary Open House on National Good Neighbor Day on Thursday, Sept. 28. The event held during normal business hours includes refreshments and giveaways.

In 1953, Miles City rancher Bill Nefsy founded Stockman Bank, with the vision to create a banking organization to serve the needs of the entire community, including local businesspeople, farmers and ranchers. Today, Stockman is the largest, family-owned, privately held bank in the state.

Stockman CEO, Bill Coffee, says his family has always believed, that as a community bank, Stockman has a higher level of responsibility to its customers, employees, and communities. “We have always done the right thing for the long term,” he said in a release. “Stockman is committed to traditional western values, local management and decision-making, and homegrown community service. This commitment has allowed us to remain independent and family-owned for 70 years. We thank our customers for their trust and loyalty over these many years and thank our employees for providing the highest level of customer service in taking care of our neighbors, day in and day out.”

As part of the celebration Whitefish and Kalispell Stockman Bank’s will be collecting new or gently used coats, hats, and gloves for Coats for Kids and the United Way.
