Bridges to lead Property Department

First National Bank Alaska’s Board of Directors recently hired Mike Bridges as the bank’s new Property Manager.

Bridges has spent the last 35 years in the United States National Guard, retiring as a brigadier general. He earned numerous service awards during his military career, including the Army Bronze Star Medal and the Alaska Legion of Merit.

“I had the privilege to serve with and lead thousands of military and civilian teammates in roles and missions across Alaska, our country and overseas,” Bridges said. “Now, I’ve joined another great team, and am eager to assist our local banking experts.”

Bridges’ primary tasks will focus on leadership of the Property Department team which oversees statewide bank facilities maintenance, renovations, equipment and services. His leadership extends to relationship management of the broad array of vendor partners who keep the bank’s office buildings and branch locations in good order.

With more than 30 properties in both urban and rural areas, the challenges of property ownership will engage Bridges’ statewide facility background gained through his prior experience.

“I bring a personal and professional tool kit that will help the bank achieve its goals of providing convenience, service and value to its customers,” Bridges said.

Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and branches in 18 communities throughout the state. Visit for more information about Alaska’s largest locally-owned bank and access to efficient and secure online banking services.
