This is an unprecedented time in our country’s history. Not only are we banding together to combat the effects of a global pandemic, but our cities, businesses, and neighborhoods are feeling the weight of civil unrest.
I am proud to be part of a 50-year-old Company that celebrates and demonstrates diversity and inclusion. Our values are anchored in putting people first and taking care of the communities we serve. First Interstate employees bring this to life every day through our service, hiring practices, and philanthropic outreach.
Through the lens of current events, our values are more important now than ever because they remind us who we truly are—people who deeply care about the communities where we live and work.
There have been protests—mostly peaceful—across our footprint, and we continue to closely monitor these situations as they unfold. In some instances, we may temporarily close branches for your safety as well as that of our employees. Before visiting a branch, please check our website to ensure your preferred location is open.
If your branch is temporarily closed, you may still connect with us—as always—via online, mobile banking, or by calling our Client Contact Center at 855-342-3400, where we are available Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. MT (6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. PT) and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. MT (9 a.m. to 1 p.m. PT).
As your community bank, please know we will continue providing essential financial services to you during this time. As your partner and neighbor, know we stand with you in the desire to heal and restore our country.
Please continue to take care of each other and your families as we journey through these uncharted waters together. Take heart and take care.
Kevin Riley, President and CEO of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc.
