A Continuing Legacy
Heading into the future with a new generation
In 2023, UBT’s longtime President and CEO Angie Muhleisen officially retired, and we transitioned to our new leadership: Jason Muhleisen, Angie’s son. It’s a change Jason had spent nearly a decade preparing for, working hard to learn about all UBT departments and to absorb as much of Angie’s and other leaders’ vast knowledge as he could. Jason is talented, hardworking, collaborative, and open to new ideas — and just like his mother, he is devoted to ensuring the culture of UBT and our commitment to our customers and community is strong. Click through to learn more about our new leader and our careful approach to succession planning.

Farmer’s State Bank is chartered and opens on the corner of 48th & Prescott in Lincoln’s College View neighborhood, becoming the first Lincoln bank located south of O Street.
Farmer’s State Bank is rechartered and renamed as Union Bank, and its location moves north a bit to 48th & Calvert.
With the addition of trust powers, the name is once again changed to Union Bank & Trust Company.
Union Bank & Trust Company is purchased by the Dunlaps, a long-time trusted Nebraska banking family, and its core principles and culture begin to take shape as it brands itself “the bank of friendly service.” Jay Dunlap is chosen to run the bank.
Jay Dunlap’s daughter, Angie Muhleisen, returns home to work for her father’s financial institution, with plans of succession.
Angie Muhleisen becomes president of UBT, overseeing bank assets of $600 million and trust assets of $1.25 billion.
UBT achieves a major milestone, surpassing $1 billion in total assets. Growth continues after two local competitors go under new ownership. UBT continues to acquire small local banks while growing its footprint in Lincoln. UBT also becomes manager of the newly created College Savings Plan of Nebraska, known as the 529 plan.
In 2005, UBT expands into Omaha with its 177th & West Center Rd. location, followed by its expansion into Kansas City in 2006 with the acquisition of Commercial State Bank in Bonner Springs, Kansas. In 2008, the nation enters a widespread financial crisis. UBT, with personal funds invested by Dunlap family members, takes a calculated gamble and buys $532 million in loans. The decision pays off, and more growth ensues.
Jason Muhleisen returns home and begins working at UBT in 2015. He will succeed his mother Angie Muhlheisen upon her retirement. In 2017, the bank celebrates its first 100 years with various events throughout the year, including a large outdoor celebration at Union Plaza.
UBT opens its second Omaha location at 144th & West Dodge Rd. Bank assets by the end of 2022 stand at $7.6 billion, with trust assets at $43.4 billion.
