We’re happy to have found one in Douglas Metzger, who has just joined The Biltmore Bank of Arizona as Senior Vice President/Senior Relationship Manager. He is responsible for supporting and expanding client relationships and providing our clients resources and products they need to support their businesses.

Previously, Doug worked for M&I Bank/BMO Harris Bank in Phoenix as a relationship manager and team lead and for First Interstate Bank/Wells Fargo Bank, also in Phoenix, before that. He has extensive experience working with machining and construction companies but has also worked with a wide range of industries represented in the Phoenix market.

“Our bankers have a deep understanding of Phoenix business,” said Rich Endicott, president of The Biltmore Bank of Arizona. “Doug’s history banking local businesses and his community ties further strengthen our bank.”

Doug spent 10 years as chairman of Friendship Retirement Corporation’s foundation, an organization that provides a broad continuum of high quality senior services. He is a graduate of the banking management program at Pacific Coast Banking School in Seattle, Washington and currently resides in Glendale.

“I’m looking forward to leveraging my deep banking experience in the Phoenix market to help grow The Biltmore Bank of Arizona and spread the word about its services,” said Doug.

Some of you may know Doug from his years of membership in Glendale Chamber of Commerce or the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. If you like to hit the links, you might spot him there, too, though this golf fan says his favorite courses are in Montana, where he loves to visit and play with his dad. Also a fisherman, Doug recommends the fishing spots along Mogollon Rim in Arizona, where he says the lakes and trout streams are remarkable.

We think we’ve made a great catch in adding Doug to our team, and we hope you have a chance to meet him soon.
