SpiritBank has been in Oklahoma's communities for more than 85 years. It is a privately held corporation with owners in Oklahoma. The most frequently asked question is about the name, SpiritBank. The owners began looking for a new name in 1994. As the bank expanded into other communities, the former name, American National Bank was already being used. Well, let's face it, all the good, traditional bank names were taken. So the odyssey of a new pioneering name began. In the process, the owners wanted to capture the spirit" of their bank. They were best known in their markets as providing extremely personal, friendly or high-touch services. All new employees were infused with the same spirit. On the other hand, they were well known for being the first in their markets with new, more convenient technology. How to capture the essence of this high-touch / high-tech spirit was the challenge. Well, you can see the thought process. In order to capture the spirit of their bank, they hit upon a very unique, very progressive name for a bank with an 85 year old tradition. Today, the bank has twelve locations with over $400 million in assets. It's a full service bank with on-line cash management services for commercial customers and internet banking for consumers. Look around, see if there's anyway we can be of assistance to you, and come by to see us at any of our locations if you're in town."
