Your banker shouldn’t be a yes-man. Instead, you should see him or her as a partner—a financial expert with the knowledge and assets to help your outfit thrive. Unfortunately, that’s not easy to find now-a-days in El Paso. Sure, the big banks have capital. But they’ve become increasingly disconnected from local business lending, thanks to out-of-state decision makers who don’t truly understand our economy. Other types of financial institutions are nice, but they lack the financial flexibility to take on ambitious business ideas.
Luckily, there’s one bank in town designed to meet the needs on your end. First National 1870, proud to be a part of the $4 billion Sunflower Bank and formerly known as Capital Bank, is composed of seasoned banking professionals invested in the region’s growth. Take Regional President Ernesto Avila and Business Banking Regional Leader Augie Montes, for example. With over 40 years of combined banking experience, the two longtime Borderplex bankers are eager to lend their skills to local businesses, including healthcare and professional practices, to make sure our community reaches its full potential. The bank also offers personal banking, mortgage and wealth advising services, making it a one-stop shop for all your financial needs.
