Local Bank Makes Big Difference in the Community

This week’s Local First Arizona member spotlight is on Gateway Bank:

Take a look at a few of Gateway Bank's accomplishments in 2011:

  • 2011 Small Business of the Year, awarded by the Mesa Chamber of Commerce
  • 5 star rating by Bauer Financial
  • One of eleven financial institutions in the state rated 4 stars or higher by Bankrate.com
  • Ranked in the top tier with regards to earnings, asset quality, capitalization, non interest expense, personal expense and liquidity among 62 financial institutions in Nevada, Arizona, California, New Mexico and Utah

In addition, the staff at Gateway found a way to shift 10% more of their spending to local companies. They picked Advance Paper and Maintenance Supply to purchase office supplies from which is keeping more money right here at home. Congratulations to Gateway on their successes in the past year and a big THANK YOU for their devotion to the community in 2012! We encourage you to consider shifting your banking to a Local First member bank or credit union in the new year!
