Buzitis named Senior Vice President

Having spent more than 38 years working in almost all areas of the organization, Cindi Buzitis is First National Bank Alaska’s new Senior Vice President.

The bank’s Board of Directors recently announced Buzitis’ promotion. In addition to serving as one of First National’s 11 Senior Vice Presidents on the executive management team, she’s also its Bank Secrecy Act and Bank Operations Support Manager.

“Receiving this kind of recognition is certainly special and comes with added responsibility,” Buzitis said. “Our senior management group consists of lifelong and longtime Alaskans with extensive experience in business, industry and banking to guide the bank through the challenges of today’s business environment.

“I’m excited to be part of that team. I am going to continue doing everything I can to help provide our customers with everything they need.”

In Buzitis’ current position, she manages the bank’s Corporate Compliance, Customer Support, Deposit Services, Manual and Review units. Buzitis joined First National as a Mini Proof Clerk in January 1977. She spent subsequent years on multiple tasks like installing the bank’s first ATMs and played an instrumental role in the 1997 conversion to a new software and hardware main frame.

“I’ll remain motivated every day and make a difference not only for the company, but for the Alaskans we serve,” Buzitis said.

Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and 30 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.
