Vast Bank Joins Manufacturing Alliance as Affiliate Member |

Vast Bank recently joined the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance as an Affiliate Member. The company is now part of a vital economic development network growing our state and raising the standard of living of all Oklahomans.

In a world that thinks bigger is best, Vast Bank begs to differ. It believes in meeting people where they are and moving toward their goals together. Being the biggest bank is not the goal, but being the best bank is. Vast is looking to build a better kind of bank – with a blended focus of high-tech digital capabilities and first-class in-person service to deliver more value to its customers.

Vast bank offers several services specifically geared toward Oklahoma manufacturers.

  • Equipment loans
  • Real estate loans
  • Lines of credit
  • SBA loans
  • Commercial and small business checking accounts

Valley National Bank began in 1982 as the vision of the late Bob Biolchini who wanted to serve local entrepreneurs with the philosophy of helping businesses that larger banks often times ignored.

“We were made to dream, to create, to build and to prosper,” says Vast Bank Chairman Tom Biolchini. “Having an advocate along the way can help clear the path for people to claim their calling. ‘Vast’ captures our desire to meet our customers’ emerging needs by being a trusted partner that is savvy, bold, tech-forward, and also easy to do business with.”

Vast Bank remains under the same family ownership and management, but with a refreshed name and vision that builds on what Bob started almost four decades ago. The bank is still one of the few remaining family-owned financial institutions in northeast Oklahoma.

CEO Brad Scrivner is confident that this change will position the bank to attract and partner with the next generation of customers and businesses.

“While our desire to support and empower the community has always been present—today it is bursting at the seams,” Scrivner said. “Two years ago, we began a transformation that is evolving our business to meet the changing needs of our customers and communities. Customers can expect everything from better apps and innovative products to streamlined underwriting and faster loan processing.”

On June 15, 2018, Vast broke ground on its new corporate headquarters—a six-story, 100,000 square foot building in downtown Tulsa. Not only does this move align tightly with its long-term strategic plan, it believes it will provide a better connection to local business owners and the downtown community at large. More importantly, however, it’s an opportunity for vast to invest again in the state it loves and call home.
