AzBusiness magazine, Arizona’s leading business publication, recognized Alliance Bank of Arizona among its five Banks of the Year as part of its Excellence in Banking awards program.

The magazine’s article about honorees included insights from Don Garner, division CEO of Alliance Bank of Arizona and a key contributor to driving the organization’s growth since its founding. Don, who recently announced his retirement after over three decades of dedicated service in commercial banking, spoke on his immense pride in watching Alliance Bank grow into one of the top regional banks in the nation from the ground up – even before the bank had an official office.

“We are honored to be named one of this year’s banks of the year,” Don said. “This recognition is evidence of our bankers’ outstanding work in the industry – with their innate client-centric mindset and deep-seated expertise in our unique local market, they’re able to provide Arizona’s business owners with the tools and resources they need to build and grow successful companies.”
