We’re always on the lookout for top banking talent, and our new underwriter, Nathaniel Spatz, certainly fits the bill.
Nathaniel has always been a hard worker. In high school, he was part of a team that won the state tennis championship. He was also part of the honor society, snagged a chance to perform at Carnegie Hall with his school’s chorale group and was in a band that won a spot to open on the Fender Stage for Fender Guitar’s 60th Anniversary celebration at the Tempe Music Festival.
He kept that momentum going in college. Nathaniel worked toward earning his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the same time, while also working as the assistant to the CFO of a community bank. Once he started his full-time banking career, he was given a senior title by age 28.
Now, as an underwriter for The Biltmore Bank of Arizona, Nathaniel is responsible for assessing and underwriting credit applications, working closely with our chief credit officer and our relationship managers. Nathaniel likes learning about different kinds of businesses by reviewing the credit applications.
“As an underwriter, I have the chance to go beyond just the numbers and also consider the story of the company when we’re reviewing a credit application,” he said.
Prior to joining our team, Nathaniel worked as a senior credit analyst at First Scottsdale Bank, an accounting specialist at Western Alliance Bancorporation and a finance intern at Torrey Pines Bank.
He earned his Bachelor’s degree in business administration from Point Loma Nazarene University and his Masters of Divinity degree in theology from Southern California Seminary. Nathaniel is a member of the Risk Management Association, and he spends one night a week giving a Bible study lecture through Community Bible Study.
His other interests include reading political thrillers, playing tennis (of course!) and hitting the gym. While he spent his college years in San Diego, Nathaniel grew up in Scottsdale and has no plans to leave the Phoenix area again, especially since he has so much family in the area. The great weather and relative lack of natural disasters helps too, he says.
We’re glad to hear it, Nathaniel. Welcome to the team.
