FirstBank continues Arizona expansion with 17th location

FirstBank Holding Company, a holding company with multiple banking locations throughout Arizona, announced the opening of its newest branch in Ahwatukee at 3945 E. Chandler Blvd. Phoenix, AZ 85048.  The major cross streets are Chandler Blvd. and 40th Street.  The 4,200 square-foot location officially opened on September 23rd and marks FirstBank’s 17th branch in Arizona.  The Colorado-based bank now has 121 branches nationwide.

“Adding this new branch in Ahwatukee helps us expand that footprint to become an even greater resource to our customers,” said Joel Johnson, President – East Valley Market.  “Since we entered the Phoenix market eight years ago, we’ve worked hard to make a positive impact in our local community.  We’re excited that our rapid growth has allowed FirstBank to become a trusted resource to individuals, families, businesses and non-profits across the East Valley and the entire Phoenix metro area.”

In its short history in Arizona, FirstBank has repeatedly shown its commitment to community involvement.  The commitment has been again demonstrated in just the last few months by its recent donation as the presenting sponsor of Arizona Gives Day, which raised over $2 million for Arizona non-profits in one day.  In addition, FirstBank made a $1 Million community development investment with Trellis (formerly Neighborhood Housing Services of Phoenix), an organization dedicated to making financially stable homes, neighborhoods and communities possible in Maricopa County.
