At City National Bank & Trust, commitment to our customers is more than a guiding principle; it’s a way of life. Founded on an intense dedication to unmatched customer service and the most convenient and easy-to-use products and services, we at City National Bank pride ourselves on more than 115 years of community banking.
In 1901, six years before Oklahoma became a state, a handful of men applied for a bank charter in a soon-to-be-opened reservation near Fort Sill in southwest Oklahoma. In order to start serving the community immediately, a small framed structure was built on wheels and rolled into town. City National Bank became what would be one of the oldest and most respected community banks in the area.
Mr. Frank M. English became president of the bank three years later and served 27 years. His successor, J.R. “Dolph” Montgomery became president in 1931 at the age of 24. At that time, he was said to be the youngest president of a national bank in the United States. He served as president for 44 years until his death in 1975.
Today, City National Bank has more than 35 branches across Oklahoma and southern Kansas. With a network of conveniently-located branches and ATMs and all the tools you need to manage your money, banking has never been easier or more convenient. Just like our founders, we are dedicated to providing our customers with the very best in customer service and solid, stable financial services.
We take great pride in our rich tradition of community banking and look forward to serving you for the next 100 years.
City National Bank – Where relationships begin, and customer service never ends!
