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.”

"Turning to Western State Bank was the best choice we made for our mortgage. The process was quick, always friendly, caring, and very professional."
