First National Bank Opens New Branch in Ft. Wright
First National Bank of Kentucky opened a new full-service branch in Ft. Wright at 2001 Dixie Highway.
“We are so lucky to have a great location to bring our full-service bank to the market! We are easy to find and convenient to visit," said Bank President Lytle Thomas. "All of us at the bank are looking forward to seeing customers in the office.”
The new open-concept banking center features an automated teller machine (ATM), a self-service teller system, as well as drive-through and in-store banking.
“I have served in this local market as a banker for 33 years. I am delighted to be with First National and able to bring a fresh new option to the Northern Kentucky banking scene. This is a bank that has 140 years of history serving Kentucky banking needs and is now right here to deliver great service through technology and personal service”, said Thomas.
First National Bank of Kentucky opened its first location in 1881 in Carrollton and today operates five branches throughout the Northern Kentucky region, including Crestwood, Warsaw, Florence, and Ft. Wright. Former State Senator Joseph A. Donaldson served as the bank’s first president. He and his five successors have seen the bank operate through two world wars, the Great Depression, the Great Recession, and now a global pandemic.
“We want to continue to serve our customers by providing the technology and personal service they want from their bank," Thomas said. "This is our first location in this area allowing us to provide full banking services to NKY. We want to do the right things every day with every customer and good things will happen for our bank and our community in the future.”
