Owning a family business presents challenges as well as opportunities. We have the experience, resources and know-how to help you embrace new opportunities to make your company a success for years to come.
Family-owned, family strong
Family-owned since 1969, Starion Bank has enjoyed a legacy of strength, agility and long-term perspective. The leadership of the Larson family means continuity and stability for our customers. Although we’ve grown to become a $1.2 billion organization, we know what it’s like to work together, struggle together and prosper together. We continue to serve our communities with the same steadfast commitment we’ve always had.
“My father, our founder, really started his banking career with the hope to help the community and customers be successful,” said Craig Larson, Starion CEO and Chairman of the Board. “I believe Frank truly exemplifies what family business should be about, and that commitment has not wavered in nearly 50 years.”
Family business focus
Since Frank and JoAndrea Larson purchased the bank in Oakes, there has always been involvement from the Larson family, helping to steer the direction of the bank and stay true to our small town values.
In 2011, the Larson family received the Prairie Family Business of the Year award for Bismarck-Mandan. This award made them eligible for the Vicki Clarke Prairie Family Business of the Year award, which they received in 2012. This is the top honor from the regional Prairie Family Business Association.
The Bismarck-Mandan award was later renamed the Franklin G. Larson Excellence in Family Business Award after his “honest and moral behavior, positive and optimistic character, visionary leadership and commitment to the communities he serves.”
