Kurt Johansen is a Market President at Western State Bank. He provides leadership and strategy development for our Arizona commercial initiatives.

“The Phoenix area is a growing and vibrant community,” Kurt says. “We want to be a partner in helping local businesses grow.”

Kurt is a leader in several local groups, including the Chandler Industrial Development Authority and the Chandler Compadres. The latter group is a charity that raises money through fundraising events for local youth and family-related charities.

Since Kurt’s customers are always making fast-paced but important financial decisions, he says that he is successful when he can be available to them.

“My customers need to be able to get a hold of me,” Kurt shares. “It’s very important that I’m available and responsive. I make that a priority.”

"Our organization was drawn to Western's local roots, friendly service, competitive rates, and low fees. Western shares our commitment to the community, and they support our kids and families in so many ways. We're very happy we switched!"

Bob Holman, Devils Lake Youth Activities

"I consider our relationship with Western as a real partnership that adds value to our business."
