In January 1984 the home office moved to its present location at 1901 North Commerce. In June 2016, ANB changed the bank charter from a National charter to a State charter. The new name, American Nation Bank, was established.
Since the inception of the bank, Jesse Cross has held the position as Chairman/CEO and most of the bank's founders continue as American Nation Bank's directors.
