Matt Williams is a 4th generation Nebraskan, who was born and raised in Gothenburg. His great-great-grandfather, H.L. Williams settled in Gothenburg in the 1890s, where he farmed and ranched before starting a local bank to help families in the area have a shot at success. Growing up Matt worked on his family farm, where he learned Nebraska values of hard work and responsibility. These values helped him earn a scholarship to attend the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and receive a degree in business administration.
Matt then attended the University of Nebraska College of Law. Following graduation in 1974, Matt and his wife Susan moved to Gothenburg to take over management of the family-owned bank.
Since 1974, Matt has worked with thousands of families, farmers, ranchers, and small businesses to help them thrive in central Nebraska. Following in his father’s and grandfathers’ footsteps, he’s worked to make sure future generations have the opportunity to succeed.
