YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – F.N.B. Corp., parent of First National Bank, has emerged as one of the 50 largest bank holding companies in the United States, with total assets of nearly $44 billion and a branch network spanning seven states and the District of Columbia.
F.N.B.’s investments in digital technology, combined with its growing footprint, have enabled the company to broaden its reach. The acceleration of its clicks-to-bricks strategy provides a seamless experience across in-branch, online and mobile channels.
By leveraging its digital platforms, F.N.B. is adding scale and convenience for customers. Building on the launch of its mobile eStore in 2021, F.N.B. has installed interactive eStore kiosks in every branch to make it easier for consumers to browse for or purchase products and view financial education content.
F.N.B. has continued to expand its ATM fleet to further supplement its branch network, boosting its ATM presence with the strategic addition of hundreds of new ATM locations in North Carolina and South Carolina. The bank also partnered with Slippery Rock University to bring its banking services on campus for students and faculty to use.
F.N.B., founded in 1864, has more than 4,100 employees. Family-friendly policies such as paid parental leave, financial support for new parents and caregiver leave are some of the elements that have earned F.N.B. approximately 50 national and regional awards.
Throughout 2022, the bank garnered various accolades for its workplace culture, including recognition as a Top Workplace USA for a second consecutive year; a Top Workplace in Financial Services in northeastern Ohio, Pittsburgh and multiple other F.N.B. markets; and a Top Workplaces Culture Excellence Award for Innovation, Leadership, Work-Life Flexibility and DEI Practices. The bank also was named by Newsweek as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity.
Construction on F.N.B Financial Center, the bank’s new corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, was ongoing during 2022. Located in a predominantly minority community, the project’s requirements for participation by local minority business enterprises (30%) and women business enterprises (15%) aligns with F.N.B.’s commitment to ensure its growth benefits its local communities. The project is expected to create thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in economic expansion.
F.N.B. made a $2.5 million commitment to Black Tech Nation Ventures, a majority Black-owned venture capital fund, to support funding and resources for Black-led technology startups and firms with diverse founders and teams, with a goal of enabling wealth creation for underrepresented entrepreneurs in F.N.B.’s multistate footprint and across the U.S.
