We "Believe in Possibility" because it's been at the center of our story. PREMIER's history dates back over 100 years, but our story changed dramatically in 1986 when T. Denny Sanford bought a small group of sleepy banks in South Dakota that would later become First PREMIER Bank. His early business success, in addition to the growth of First PREMIER Bank/PREMIER Bankcard continues to be the fuel behind his passionate giving. Through it all, Denny has never forgot his blue-collar beginnings or strong Midwest values.
•First PREMIER Bank is one of the strongest capitalized banks in the country and operates with no debt. Asset growth is funded through time-tested, traditional sources such as deposits and equity.
•First PREMIER Bank was recognized as one of the healthiest banks in the country in 2015 (DepositAccounts.com).
We are the 12th largest issuer of MasterCard® and VISA® credit cards in the country.
United National Corporation, the holding company for First PREMIER Bank/PREMIER Bankcard, has been consistently ranked as one of the top-performing S-corp banks with assets between $100 million and $3 billion by the American Association Banking Journal.
There's a reason we've been nationally ranked among the "2015 Best Banks to Work For" by American Banker and Best Companies Group. We realize it isn't just about a job, it's about having a life inside and outside of the workplace. At PREMIER we know how to be successful and even more important, we know how to have fun doing it. From company celebrations featuring some of the countries leading entertainers, spot awards, holiday gifts, internal auctions, Halloween costume parties, an emphasis on serving others in the community, and a host of other unique ways – we don't just tell our people we appreciate them, we show them.
Every possibility starts somewhere. Yours can begin right here.
