Springfield-based OMB Bank is excited to announce it will enter the Kansas City market with plans for a loan production office and future full-service branch in Lenexa, Kan. The LPO, located at 8801 Renner Blvd., Ste. 401, is in the popular mixed use Lenexa City Center and will initially provide commercial lending and treasury management services for businesses in and around Lenexa.
“Our mission at OMB has always revolved around convenient and meaningful community banking done better,” said Mark Harrington, president and chief executive officer. “Our plan with this new LPO – located in a growing, thriving and highly-desirable area – helps us deliver on that commitment. We’re incredibly excited to expand our service area and provide Lenexa residents and business owners with the exceptional products and services that set OMB apart from other community banks.”
Banking veteran Doug Parker, who joined the bank as senior vice president and community bank president in February, will lead OMB’s new location. Parker’s banking career spans more than 30 years and includes extensive experience leading bank expansion efforts. His prior positions include EVP of real estate lending for Regions Bank, regional president for Bank of the Ozarks, Southwest Missouri president for Simmons Bank and Southwest Missouri regional president for Encore Bank.
“OMB has been exploring growth opportunities for some time and has been doing commercial and agricultural lending in the state of Kansas for several years, so expanding our presence into Lenexa feels like a perfect fit,” Parker said. “The bank’s commitment to community, innovation and excellence resonates and local businesses who prefer the personal attention they can only receive at a community bank I think will feel at home with OMB.”
OMB leadership will soon begin the process of submitting a branch application to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which will allow the location to accept customer deposits once approved. The LPO, which is expected to open in the third quarter of 2023, will be OMB’s ninth location.
