Great Western Bank merged with First Federal Saving Bank of Iowa in June. First Federal was first opened as First Federal Savings and Loan in October 1954.
"The same great people that were with First Federal are still serving our customers," said Kirk Yung, group president for Great Western Bank. "Employees in Fort Dodge have well over 100 years of service with First Federal and will provide the same great service to them at Great Western Bank."
