Leadership

We at Sunwest Bank realize that there are plenty of banks to choose from today, most preaching about their "relationship banking" and "great customer service." Our management team and Board of Directors realize that these are more than catchy slogans, but disciplined business principles. We are committed to the service of our customers.

Sunwest Bank focuses on small-to-mid-size businesses, with relationship managers specializing in niche industries and markets. The team is seasoned, with an entrepreneurial spirit and thought process connected with a relationship-based client experience.
