The history of Emprise Bank began in 1910 with the formation of Stockyards National Bank. By setting a higher standard of service for Wichita’s banking customers, the Bank was destined for success from its very first transaction.
In 1965 the Michaelis family acquired Stockyards National Bank, which changed its name to United American Bank & Trust in the early 1970s. Over the next 40 years the Michaelis family acquired banks and opened locations in communities across Kansas.
Today, the Emprise Bank family continues to grow with more than 40 locations in over 20 communities across the state. With a commitment to the communities we serve and a dynamic leadership team, Emprise Bank will continue to be the premier community bank where customer relationships still have value.
