American Heritage Bank is one of the oldest independently owned banks in the Tulsa area. In the early 1900’s the world’s largest oil field was discovered in Glenpool, Oklahoma, and AHB links its beginnings to this discovery.
The bank opened its doors in 1905 with $25,000 capital and a board of directors comprised largely of oilmen. Three of these – F.B. Ufer, P.J. White and Harry F. Sinclair - went on to form Sinclair Oil, one of the largest oil companies during the mid-1900’s.
In 1939, Guy L. Berry, Sr. led the Bank as President during one of its greatest periods of growth. His son, Guy L. Berry Jr., succeeded him in 1957 and later served as Chairman of the Board until his death in 1980. A third generation, William L. Berry and Guy L. Berry, currently serve as Chairman and President, respectively.
Since 1905, the keystone of American Heritage’s success has been the ongoing relationships with the communities served. The Bank has a strong belief in participation in local activities, not only financially, but with the time and talents of its employees, officers and directors. AHB has operations in 15 area communities and employs close to 300 people.
