KALAMAZOO, MI-December 17, 2018- The First National Bank of Michigan Board of Director’s along with its employees have announced the creation of The Daniel R. Smith Banking Internship.

Dan Smith

“Dan played a key role in banking for several years here locally, state-wide and nationally. He was instrumental in helping open our bank in 2006”, stated Daniel Bitzer, President and CEO of First National Bank of Michigan (FNBM). “He served as Director Emeriti of FNBM until his death last month. Several of our current employees worked for Dan previously and value the work ethic and ideals he instilled in them. His leadership, mentorship and advice will be missed.”

The Board members and employees of FNBM chose to honor Dan’s memory by creating the Daniel R. Smith Banking Internship. The internship will be awarded annually to a Western Michigan University student majoring in Business, Accounting or Finance.

First National Bank of Michigan is a community bank with offices in Kalamazoo, Portage, Grand Rapids, Holland and Lansing. That means instead of relying on an affiliation with a multi-bank holding company, funds are derived from and lent to the communities where we operate in Michigan. Because we are local and locally owned, decisions are also made by professionals you can talk to face-to-face. First National Bank of Michigan’s commitment to delivering unmatched customer service, combined with our longstanding investment in the community, is why you’ll always receive the personalized attention you deserve when you bank with us.
