Come see our new Phoenix bank home

By: Larry J. Dewhirst, Arizona Regional President
First International Bank & Trust, Member FDIC

Our combination of Midwestern values and southwestern style has helped us serve customers well from our three Arizona bank offices. Now, we have a new Phoenix bank location on Camelback Road. We provide all our services from this Phoenix location, from our expertise in Trust and Wealth Management to 24-hour ATMs. Our new location is near the headquarters of several major U.S. companies, so we’re easily accessible to their employees. Interestingly, one of our other neighbors is the Arizona office of U.S. Senator John McCain.


Midwestern roots, southwestern style

This new location reflects our bank’s roots—and future. Here’s what I mean: I grew up in Grassy Butte, N.D., and worked in our Watford City bank location for many years. Those same values are the foundation of our Arizona bank services. Yet we’ve incorporated the needs of our Arizona customers to our locations here. We have ample space for our customers to meet with our bankers about their financial plans, officers with particular expertise in Trust and Wealth Management, Special Needs Trusts (read the recent blog by Bridget about this unique type of trust account), Investments and Insurance. Since summer in Arizona is like winter in North Dakota, where you don’t want to be outside too long, we have convenient parking and easily accessible ATMs.

Celebrate with us

Here are the details of our Grand Opening:

July 25
Open house: 11 a.m.- 2 p.m.
2231 East Camelback Road

We’ll serve picnic-style lunch and refreshments, and we’ll have free gifts and tours available. You can also enter to win door prizes and an iPad mini!

Please join us if you can. Or, stop in when you’re in the Camelback area. We’re excited to show you our new space, and especially eager to serve you.

Larry has been in financial services since 1977, when he started his career with Farm Credit Services. He’s helped First International Bank & Trust customers, specially with their loan needs, since 1987. He and his wife of 43 years, Pat, have three adult married children and four grandchildren, who are spread out in Minnesota, Texas and Colorado. Away from the bank, Larry enjoys hiking, exploring old mines, fast cars–and cheering on those grandkids in their sports and other action.
