ONE AMERICAN BANK is a family owned bank. Opened as the Bank of Centerville in 1883, 6 years before South Dakota had gained statehood; it has weathered the test of time. The Thomson family members were the principal shareholders and executive officers for over 100 years, later changing the Bank’s name to First Midwest Bank. In 2011, the Thomson family sold the Bank to Mert Lund, who had owned community banks over the last 40 years. With innovative ideas, the Bank was renamed ONE AMERICAN BANK with two locations in Sioux Falls and one in Centerville. Sadly, in January of 2013, Mert passed away leaving his banking legacy to his wife Karen and son George. The Lunds have reaffirmed their commitment to maintain and grow the Bank per Mert’s wishes. The Bank has a solid management team in place and a commitment to maintain customer service excellence. As an extremely well capitalized financial institution, the Bank is embracing technology with new products and services. As much as these technological advancements will enhance and simplify the way you conduct your financial business, it’s the staff members at ONE AMERICAN BANK that will be there to listen to you, to assist you, and help answer any questions that technology simply can’t resolve.
