25 Feb 2017
A Fort Dodge bank adopted a new name on Friday.
The former CSBank is now Availa Bank, leaders of the financial institution announced Friday.
”We are proud to be a part of this community and we are excited to elevate our presence to provide our customers easier access to a larger network of financial institutions in communities across Iowa,” said Dave Flattery, the bank’s Fort Dodge market president and trust officer.
”We are still a community bank with local decision makers, and we are excited to develop new relationships in the communities we serve,” he added.
In Fort Dodge, Availa Bank is located at 130 N. 29th St.
The name change was made to increase the institution’s recognition in multiple markets in western and northern Iowa, bank officials wrote in a statement announcing the name change.
The renamed bank is still under the same ownership, and will retain the same employees and locations, according to the announcement.
Prior to the name change, Availa Bank operated as a network of financial institutions under different names that were all owned by Carroll County State Bank. All those banks are now called Availa Bank.
