The Kosman family banking history dates back to the early 1900s and now has 22 banking locations throughout the Nebraska Panhandle, eastern Wyoming and northern Colorado.

Kosman was recognized at the Nebraska Bankers Association 2024 Annual Convention in Omaha, Nebraska for serving in the financial services industry for 50 years.
