About First Scottsdale Bank (FSB)
May 15, 2015 SPECIAL NEWS RELEASE
First Scottsdale Bank (FSB) started like many small businesses…with an entrepreneurial vision. In 2009, the Valley was in the midst of the Great Recession. A group of local bankers and investors recognized most banks were struggling to maintain positive, healthy relationships with their customers. The time was right for a fresh, new approach to business banking – built on face-to-face relationships and a commitment to real 24/7 service.
In 2010, a plan was developed to acquire First National Bank of Scottsdale which at the time was owned by an out-of-state banking company. Management raised capital from 90 plus local investors who shared a vision to build a “hometown” business focused bank, committed to exceptional service and long term relationships – in good times and bad. The purchase was completed October of that year and the name was shortened to First Scottsdale Bank (FSB) shortly thereafter. In 2013, First Scottsdale Bank (FSB) also acquired Gold Canyon Bank, which has enabled the bank to expand thier focus and commitment offering a new approach to community banking in various markets in Arizona.
Today, FSB is a traditional community bank with local ownership and local decision-making. The bank offers a full array of banking and lending services for small to mid-size businesses. The foundation of our bank is built around experienced leadership and financial strength. It is also management’s belief that the success of a community bank hinges on the quality of its people and their ability to provide extraordinary service to each and every customer…everyday. That starts with knowing our customers by name, not a number.
With a dedication to meet this extraordinary service standard, our bankers are committed to the local small business community - we are experienced, responsive and invested in the success of our customers. If you are tired of being “no one” with your current bank, we welcome an opportunity to meet for a few minutes and talk about how First Scottsdale can offer you an exceptional banking experience.
