Michigan National Bank was a bank founded in Lansing, Michigan, which was established on 31 December 1940 when Howard J Stoddard consolidated six Michigan banks: First National Bank and Trust Company of Grand Rapids, First National Trust and Savings Bank of Port Huron, Lansing National Bank, City National Bank of Battle Creek, National Bank of Saginaw and First National Bank of Marshall.
This allowed co-owned but separately operated Michigan Bank N.
A., located in Detroit, to be renamed Michigan National Bank of Detroit with MNC as its parent. In the early 1980s, Michigan National was caught up in the collapse of Penn Square Bank and Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company which forced the resignation of Stanford Stoddard in 1984. Mylod became chairman and CEO of Michigan National in 1985, succeeding Edwin B. Mylod closed 140 of its 340 branches and shed half of its 700 ATMs.
Loosened banking regulations in the late 1980s made MNC struggle to remain independent, but the loosened regulations allowed Michigan National to consolidate its banks into one bearing the Michigan National Bank name as the deregulation allowed for statewide branch banking in Michigan. ABN AMRO announced on 22 November 2000, that it had signed a definitive agreement with National Australia Bank Ltd for the acquisition of MNC for USD 2.75 billion in cash.
At the time, it had total assets amounting to USD 11.6 billion.
MNC's primary subsidiary was Michigan National Bank with 3,600 employees, 184 branches and 332 ATMs.
On 2 April 2001, MNC was acquired by ABN AMRO North America, Inc., the parent company of Troy, Michigan based Standard Federal Bank.
The merged company retained the Standard Federal name, but dropped Standard's federal savings bank charter in favor of Standard's national bank charter. 59 overlapping branch offices were closed. As a result of this merger, Standard Federal operated approximately 300 branches and 850 ATMs in the state of Michigan, more than any other financial institution in the state. commercial banking operations under the La Salle Bank name.
