Bank of New Mexico formerly Grants State Bank has been located in Grants, New Mexico on Historic Route 66 in Cibola County since 1947, and has served the Cibola County area during the logging and ranching years, when it was named “The Carrot Capital of the World” and through two boom-to-busts when it was later named “The Uranium Capital of the World”. The Grants State Bank offices of Bank of New Mexico continue to serve the community in the new millennium by providing one of a kind personalized service. There are three Grants State Bank, Bank of New Mexico offices in the community. The main office is located in the central part of Grants, NM. One branch office is located in the northeast part of Grants and one branch office is located in the Village of Milan, a village adjacent to Grants.
In 2014 Grants State Bank expanded into Gallup/McKinley and Albuquerque and changed its name to Bank of New Mexico to reflect its increasing statewide presence. As Bank of New Mexico we are now excited about expanding our successful “community banking” business model that has existed in Cibola County since 1947 to serve these new communities. Each bank in each community will be focused on serving the unique needs of those communities and the businesses and residents of those communities.
We have taken a very different approach to send a clear message of who we are in the communities we serve. While we now operate under the name of Bank of New Mexico we also retain the community name as our “trademark” in the rural communities we serve. In Grants we continue to do business as Grants State Bank, Bank of New Mexico Office and in Gallup we do business as Gallup State Bank, Bank of New Mexico Office. While each bank is focused on serving the special and unique needs of the community it services we all share a common logo and we all share a common vision.
In addition to being focused on serving the needs of the communities we serve in Albuquerque we specifically focus on serving the needs of the small business community and our objective is to create relationships with our small business customers that will meet their specific needs and help them be successful.
Bank of New Mexico will be a trusted community friend/partner providing a positive memorable customer experience that exceeds our customer's expectations and leaves them smiling. We will play an active role in helping our community and our customers achieve success, by providing sound financial advice and high quality financial products and services. We will be the best place to work, following the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct, with a well-trained and highly engaged workforce that is excited about delivering substantial value to each other and to our customers each and every day.
