American State Bank & Trust opening new HQ

Kansas’ American State Bank & Trust is opening a new headquarters building in downtown Wichita later this year.

The $756 million bank will occupy the first floor of a building currently under construction at 430 E. Douglas.

“By bringing our commercial lending group together, we can build a stronger team, able to serve our current and future customers,” said President and CEO Doug Thurman. “We will have 25 employees in the new location, including 2 or 3 new positions.

American State, which was Rose Hill Bank until 2018, has two other branches in Wichita as well as 14 in the rest of the state.
