Community Bank of Chickasaw Park Avenue Banking Center
Located in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City, the Chickasaw Community Bank Park Avenue Banking Center, 115 Park Ave., will enhance the bank’s customer service options and help achieve the bank’s mission of ” Building a better life for all”.
“For years, Chickasaw Community Bank has helped individuals, families and businesses plan for their future by providing the financial freedom to achieve their goals,” Governor Anoatubby said. “This strong foundation and community-focused principles have contributed greatly to the bank’s continued growth and ability to impact the community.”
The new branch will improve the ability to meet customers’ financial needs and increase the Chickasaw Nation’s presence in Oklahoma City’s downtown business district.
“Being part of the Oklahoma City community is very special to us,” Governor Anoatubby said.
Wholly owned by the Chickasaw Nation, the Chickasaw Community Bank has served the Oklahoma City community for more than two decades.
From its inception, the bank has been dedicated to serving the financial and home lending needs of Indigenous people across the country and has been a resource for economic and community development in Oklahoma City.
The final steel girder of the Chickasaw Community Bank Headquarters building, 7420 W. Memorial Road, was placed during a finishing ceremony in March.
Governor Anoatubby, members of the bank’s board of directors and other dignitaries signed the beam before it was hoisted into place.
The nearly 33,000 square foot building will include 79 offices, six conference rooms, a multipurpose area for training and events, and serve as the bank’s headquarters. The bank employs 200 people.
Formerly known as Bank2, the bank changed its name in 2020 to Chickasaw Community Bank to better reflect Chickasaw values and heritage.
The Chickasaw Nation’s involvement in banking began over a century ago when the Chickasaw Nation Bank was established in the early 1900s in the Indian Territory of the historic Chickasaw Nation capital, Tishomingo .
Chickasaw Community Bank is part of the Chickasaw Nation’s diverse portfolio of more than 100 companies, which also includes manufacturing, energy, healthcare, media, technology, hospitality, retail and tourism.
