First Interstate Bank is a community banking organization headquartered in Billings, Montana. Since 1968, First Interstate has grown from a single bank to more than 120 locations throughout Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.
When First Interstate founder, Homer Scott, Sr., first purchased Bank of Commerce in Sheridan, Wyoming, he envisioned an exemplary bank with roots that would grow deep in the community. For Homer, the formula was simple: take the best possible care of your customers, your employees, and the place you call home. Leading his bank with disciplined business practices and a long-term perspective, Homer watched the company’s roots strengthen. Time passed, the company grew, and a new name was established, yet the values Homer instilled stayed the same.
Today, our dedication to our founder’s values of customer satisfaction, creative management, productive employees, shareholder value and community involvement remains unwavering. Driven by strong corporate and family values, First Interstate is committed to providing exemplary customer service, exceeding customer expectations with our products and services, and supporting the communities we serve.
Giving back through donations, event sponsorships, and volunteer efforts is something ingrained in the ethos of every First Interstate employee—in fact, it’s even written into our corporate values. Over the last 25 years, the First Interstate BancSystem Foundation has contributed more than $20 million dollars and 154,000 volunteer hours to the places we call home.
Offering a full suite of banking, lending, and business services, First Interstate strives to deliver on the promise to provide the right product to the right customer at the right time. To learn more, visit us at firstinterstate.com.
