High Plains Bank


What does hometown service mean to you?

To us, it means our customers are our friends, because they are our neighbors, too. Because you are our neighbor and friend, we want you to have the best, most current financial products available, and we want these products delivered to you with the exceptional service you deserve.

We celebrated our 100th Anniversary in 2008. We originally opened our doors as the Flagler State Bank, founded in 1908. In 1920, we became The First National Bank of Flagler.

Alex Creighton first went to work for the organization in that same year. The Creighton family has been majority owner of the bank since 1964. Four of Alex’s grandchildren are very active with the bank. Tom Creighton, Jr. serves as the bank’s Chairman, John Creighton serves as the bank’s Executive Vice President, Tim Creighton and Virginia Newton both sit on the Board of Directors. We opened our first location under the name of High Plains National Bank in Bennett in June of 1998. We purchased our Wiggins branch in August of 2001. In 2003, we changed our name to High Plains Bank in order to create continuity between our locations and sharpen customer awareness of our banks. In 2013, we opened the doors to our Longmont High Plains Bank location.

High Plains Bank became an employee owned bank in 2003. Today, High Plains employees own nearly one quarter of the holding company’s shares. Former employees own another five percent. Jim Pieters has served as the bank’s CEO since 1998 and also serves as the president of the Bennett location. Ed Rarick and Gail Stencel are the presidents of Flagler and Wiggins locations. Chris McVay is the location manager in Longmont. Together, these four have more than 140 years of banking experience.

Our bank’s leaders not only work in Flagler, Bennett, Wiggins and Longmont. These are the communities in which they’ve raised their children and their extended families continue to live. Similar stories can be told of all our employees. We believe we’re successful because our employees call their communities home, first. Banking is one way in which we are able to serve. High Plains Bank employees are also active members of their respective communities.
