Growing into Grand Island

The Bank of Wood River has had many deposit and loan relationship sin Grand Island due to our presence in the county since 1952. In September of 1993, the directors decided to open a loan production office in northwest Grand Island. The bank hired Dave Boehle to manage the LPO. After 24 months, the office moved to the new Cannon-Schroeder Building on Carleton Avenue. Craig Moyer went to Grand Island in February 1995, having served at the Bank of Wood River since 1985. Craig and Dave developed new banking relationships for several more years before they had outgrown their facilities. On October 1, 1998, ground was broken for the new Heritage Bank on Webb Road, and the move was made in October 1999. The temporary building that had been on the Webb Road site was then moved to Doniphan as a new branch. With a team of Relationship Managers including Craig Moyer, Curt Mickey, Chuck Olson, Nick Rennau, and Max Luber, Heritage Bank Grand Island has grown to be one of Grand Island’s premier financial institutions.
