MANITOWOC – First Manitowoc Bancorp Inc. on Tuesday said it’s changed its corporate name to Bank First National Corp.

The Manitowoc-based bank’s name change is effective immediately, according to a statement. Shareholders approved the name change at the company’s annual meeting on May 19, the statement said.

The company’s stock ticker trading symbol was changed to “BFNC” on May 15.

"The company's board of directors and management team agreed the name change of our holding company will better align with the bank's name, the company's ticker symbol, and will be less confusing to our customers and potential investors outside of the Manitowoc County market," said Mike Molepske, president and CEO. "Current shareholders do not need to take any action regarding their stock registration or dividends, nor will they need new stock certificates issued."
