Northrim Bank is pleased to announce the opening of its newest branch, the Nome Branch, located at 110 Front Street, Suite 100. The Bank received special permission to open a temporary location to meet the needs of the Nome community in the aftermath of the storms that devastated the region earlier this year.

“We are pleased to be able to open a branch in Nome and are proud to be able to serve Northwest Alaska,” said Mike Huston, Northrim Bank President. “We have planned to open a financial center in Nome and are happy to open this branch early to help people access banking services, especially after the damage from Typhoon Merbok. We are looking forward to growing in the area and getting to know the community.”

Customers will have full access to banking services when the branch opens on December 12 in the Bering Straits Building. A new larger Financial Center will follow in 2023 on Fifth Avenue. The branch is staffed locally and lead by Drew McCann as the lending branch manager.

The Nome Branch brings Northrim Bank to 18 branches throughout Alaska. Northrim will host a community celebration in 2023 to commemorate the new branch.
