On the Move since 1999

Looking back,1999 was quite a year.  Gas prices plummeted to less than $1.00 per gallon, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit 10,000 – then 11,000 – for the first time and “Y2K” was a constant topic of discussion with the new millennium approaching. As if that wasn’t enough, Sponge Bob premiered on Nickelodeon.

It’s fair to say those were all important events, but we like to think there was another one that was even bigger. In 1999, our founder David Becker opened First Internet Bank – the very first state chartered, FDIC-insured fully online bank – and changed the banking industry forever. Significant? Without a doubt!

While it’s satisfying to look back at our many successes since then, we prefer to look forward to what we can become in the 25 years (and more) to come. We’re grateful for the contributions from team members, past and present, and especially for the loyal customers who have helped us grow into the bank we are today.

It took one man to Imagine More in 1999 and create a revolution; together, there are no limits to what we can do next.

We’ve come a long way…
