Business briefs: First National Bank of the Rockies emerges from regulatory order


— First National Bank of the Rockies has completed the terms of a consent order and terminated the voluntary agreement.

Following the most recent recession and housing crash, First National Bank of the Rockies entered into the consent order with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in November 2009 to address the regulatory agency’s concerns about the bank’s commercial real estate risk management, problem loan management and other risk assessment and management processes, according to a news release.

The release states that the bank now is in compliance with all 12 portions of the order.

“In today’s economic climate, people want to know how financially stable their bank is,” Pete Waller — president, chairman and CEO of First National Bank of the Rockies — said in the release. “There’s a lot of misinformation about the banking business out there, and we want to clearly communicate the facts about the regulatory issues we faced and the financial strength of FNBR.”

A number of banks were under consent orders following the most recent recession and many remain so.
