After several months of internal planning and discussion, Old Missouri Bank is now formally OMB Bank. The State of Missouri Division of Finance recognized the corporate title change effective March 20, 2023, and official documents have been received and approved by the Missouri Secretary of State’s office.
“We couldn’t be more excited to usher in this new era for OMB,” said Mark Harrington, president and CEO. “The Old Missouri Bank name has served us well for a long time, but it was clear we needed to make an adjustment to align the bank’s brand with our strategic growth initiatives. This name change helps position OMB for future growth locally, regionally and beyond.”
New branding elements coinciding with the change have already begun to appear in marketing material while exterior signage will be updated as budgeting allows. Official social media handles for Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter already reflect the name change.
“The change to OMB Bank comes with a great deal of careful thought and consideration about the history of our bank and where we want to take it in the future,” said Shanda Trautman, chief marketing officer. “We’ll always be deeply proud of OMB’s roots here in the Ozarks. Community banking made better is at the forefront of everything we do and our new name will help us further our commitment to providing the best banking experience for the families, businesses and communities we serve.”
Harrington, a lifelong banker, founded JamesMark Bancshares, Inc. in 1998 as the holding company for Old Missouri National Bank, which was established in 1999. In 2006 the name was officially changed to Old Missouri Bank. OMB Bank operates eight full-service branch locations and provides consumer, commercial, mortgage, treasury and digital banking services across Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas.
