For the third consecutive year, Luana Savings Bank has once again been awarded the honor of Metro's Best Bank, having also been awarded the title in 2020 and 2021. The Des Moines Register's Metro's Best is the annual reader-voted competition for local businesses within the Des Moines Metro area and surrounding communities where the Des Moines Register and Des Moines Register's Community Publications are distributed.
Nomination and voting rounds took place in May and July 2022. Only 5 nominees were named to compete in the final voting round and Luana Savings Bank again earned the top spot over all other major financial institutions within the Metro including U.S. Bank, West Bank, Community State Bank, and Bankers Trust. The special announcement was made available by the Des Moines Register at their Gala event on Thursday October 6th, in the Des Moines Register paper on Sunday October 9th, and online on Tuesday October 11th.
Luana Savings Bank previously held the title of West Des Moines' Best Bank or Credit Union in 2017 and 2018 when localized competitions were held in communities surrounding the Metro. Since 2020 the Des Moines Register has streamlined the process into a single prestigious competition encompassing the entire Metro and surrounding communities.
"Thank you to our customers and readers of the Des Moines Register who took the time to vote for Luana Savings Bank as the Metros Best Bank for the 3rd year in a row. What a remarkable honor! We pride ourselves in providing the best customer service we can offer. This award gives us the positive feedback from the general public and customers that we are doing just that. Luana Savings Bank is a great place to bank and our employees are fantastic. Again, thank you to everyone who voted for us. We are honored," said Angie Sprenger, Branch Manager and Residential Loan Officer of the Clive office.
Luana Savings Bank was established in 1908 and is the 10th largest community bank in the State* with 6 offices across Northeast and Central Iowa – Luana, Ossian, New Hampton, Polk City, Clive, and Norwalk.
