OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Bill Anoatubby led two milestone events for Chickasaw Community Bank, recently. A ribbon cutting for a new downtown branch was March 29, and a topping off ceremony at the bank’s new headquarters, which is under construction, was March 17.

Chickasaw Community Bank Park Avenue Banking Center

Located in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City, Chickasaw Community Bank Park Avenue Banking Center, 115 Park Ave., will enhance the bank’s customer service options and assist with fulfilling the bank’s mission of “Building Better Lives for Everyone.”

“For years, Chickasaw Community Bank has helped individuals, families and businesses plan for the future by providing the financial freedom to reach their goals,” Gov. Anoatubby said. “This solid foundation and community-oriented principles have greatly contributed to the bank’s continued growth and its ability to impact the community.”

The new branch will enhance the ability to serve customers’ financial needs and increase the Chickasaw Nation’s presence in the Oklahoma City downtown business district.

“Being a part of the Oklahoma City community is very special to us,” Gov. Anoatubby said.

Wholly-owned by the Chickasaw Nation, Chickasaw Community Bank has served the Oklahoma City community for more than two decades.

Since its beginning, the bank has been dedicated to meeting the financial and home loan needs of Native people across the country, and has been a resource for economic and community development in Oklahoma City.

Topping Out Ceremony

The final steel beam in the construction of Chickasaw Community Bank headquarters, 7420 W. Memorial Road, was placed in a topping out ceremony in March.

Gov. Anoatubby, bank board members and other dignitaries signed the beam before it was hoisted into place.

The nearly 33,000-square-foot building will feature 79 offices, six conference rooms, a multipurpose area for trainings and events, and serve as the bank’s headquarters. The bank employs 200.

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 the banking business began more than a century ago when the Bank of the Chickasaw Nation was established in early 1900’s Indian Territory in the historic Chickasaw Nation capital city, Tishomingo.

Chickasaw Community Bank is part of the Chickasaw Nation’s diverse portfolio of more than 100 business holdings, which also include manufacturing, energy, health care, media, technology, hospitality, retail and tourism.
