Core Bank

Core Bank, seen here at West Center Road. in Omaha, Nebraska, will open its first office outside the state in Overland Park, Kansas. 

Core Bank has opened its first office outside of Nebraska in the Kansas City area, where the Omaha-based bank will focus on business lending from a loan production office.

Jason Moxness will lead Core Bank’s new effort in Overland Park, Kansas.

Officials with the bank say they see a good opportunity to reach small businesses in the area by offering conventional business loans in addition to loans made through the federal Small Business Administration.

Moxness, a veteran Kansas City-area banker, said having a relatively smaller bank competing in a market full of national lenders should resonate with the smaller businesses Core Bank hopes to loan money to.

Core Bank is the No. 10-largest bank in the Omaha area in terms of local deposits with about $380 million, according to the latest federal figures.
