Amarillo National Bank has never been typical — and they’re proud of it. The maverick soul of Amarillo is still very much a part of their daily work and lives. At ANB, they’re fiercely independent, answering only to their customers. They have no outside stockholders or board of directors, no giant corporate headquarters full of concrete and shadows. It’s all here under the wide open skies of Amarillo. ANB is guided by a pretty simple set of principles — a kind of code — that would be familiar to anybody who grew up there as they did. It’s about treating people right, and doing right by your community. They say what they mean and mean what they say. And they always remember where they come from, because there’s no place else they’d rather be. In this day and age, it’s more important than ever to stand for something. At ANB, they stand up for the little guy and the small business. They stand by their neighbors in good times and bad. Maybe that’s why they’ve stood the test of time.
