It’s Our Anniversary!

Bank First was founded in May 1894 with a capitalization of $50,000. The bank operated from one location in downtown Manitowoc. Today, Bank First has assets in excess of $1.8 billion and operates out of 18 locations throughout Wisconsin. It has become one of the top performing financial institutions in the State of Wisconsin. Bank First attributes its success to attracting and retaining top talent who are committed to excellence and adhering to the principles of the bank’s promise: “We are a relationship-based community bank focused on providing innovative products and services that are value driven.”
