About Us

Our History

First National Bankers Bank, originally known as Louisiana Independent Bank, N.A., was established in 1984 by Joe Quinlan and a group of Louisiana bankers to serve community financial institutions in the state of Louisiana. FNBB, the banking subsidiary of First National Bankers Bankshares, Inc., began with one location in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Today, we have seven locations and serve community financial institutions in 11 states in the Southeast.

As we grew over the years, we not only added new banking locations, but expanded our offerings beyond traditional correspondent banking services. Under the holding company, FNBB, Inc., new subsidiaries were launched. FNBB Services Corp. provides internal audits, IS audits, compliance audit services and loan review services. FNBB Capital Markets, LLC provides retirement benefit services and Bank Owned Life Insurance products. FNBB Insurance Agency, LLC provides lines of insurance products and services to community banks.

In our unique structure, our shareholders are our respondent bank customers. This cooperative endeavor offers community banks a true correspondent bank partner who would never be their competition. Community banks play a vital role in sustaining the quality of life that makes our towns and cities such special places to live and raise a family. By always staying true to our banker’s bank model we have provided the support and technology they need to thrive and succeed.

We understand that to continue we must cultivate our strengths while evolving with the changing banking environment. While community banking will continue to change, FNBB Inc.’s commitment will not. Our commitment to assisting our community bank shareholders and customers achieve their objectives is embodied in our mantra of Service Beyond Comparison.
