About Us

About Us 

At Alliance Bank of Arizona, we are proud of our record in working to help our economy grow— during both the good economic times and the bad. In 2002, I, along with five other longtime Arizona bankers, joined with Arizona native Robert Sarver to form a new commercial bank. We believed that there was a significant need for a locally-focused bank that understood the financial needs of Arizona businesses, as well as the fundamentals and nuances of the state’s economy.  

Today, our relationships with the business community, municipalities, non-profits and professionals across sectors run as deep as our Arizona roots. In 12 short years, we have grown to be the state’s largest locally headquartered bank—one that shares the strong entrepreneurial spirit of the businesses we serve.
We have mile-marked our journey by publishing the limited-edition book At Work in Arizona—a photographic essay of Arizona’s first 100 years of business. It is my hope that this pictorial tribute will inspire and challenge a new generation of confident, self-reliant Arizonans to make big bets on our next 100 years – starting with an increased investment in education.  

Arizona is locked in a global race for talent and opportunity—a race that can only be won by creating a highly skilled workforce. So unwavering is our commitment that we have dedicated all proceeds of the book to some of Arizona’s best education-focused non-profits. These dedicated organizations are not only creating graduates, but scholars. It is our privilege to serve as a conduit to their success and Arizona’s future.
