Western Alliance Bank Featured in AzBusiness as one of AZ Big 100’s ‘50 Businesses to Watch in 2024’

February 23, 2024

Western Alliance Bank was recently honored among AZ Big 100’s “50 Businesses to Watch in 2024” by AzBusiness magazine, Arizona’s leading business publication. Earning this recognition reflects Western Alliance Bank, Member FDIC, and Alliance Bank of Arizona’s continued dedication to Arizona’s economic growth through serving many of the state’s businesses across countless industries. 

Each year, AzBusiness’ editorial team and industry experts highlight the 100 people and companies that will help shape Arizona’s economy in 2024 and beyond. The 50 people and 50 companies chosen will have a tremendous impact on the business landscape in the upcoming year – and Western Alliance Bank, the state’s largest locally headquartered bank, has big plans. 

The influx of people moving to Arizona is set to significantly boost the state’s commercial and industrial market, which plays a crucial role in stabilizing Arizona’s economy. The organization is sharply focused on several strategic initiatives designed to expand personalized services and solutions to support this expansion across the region. Building on its bankers’ trusted advisor model and engagement with community partners, teams are set to provide heightened offerings. This means specialized focus for small to mid-sized companies, which are highly important market segments in Arizona, as they help support the local economy by creating new jobs, stimulating consumer spending and driving demand. 

“As a local business, we take Arizona’s economic progress very seriously,” said Dillan Knudson, Western Alliance Bank’s new Head of Commercial Banking for Arizona. “We play a vital role in helping Arizona communities thrive by supporting business and commerce across the region. This recognition is humbling and will inspire our team as we help shape the state’s development in the next year, and beyond.”
