Sue Welton

Branch Manager/Loan Officer, Palmer

Loan Officer Sue Welton recently surpassed 10 years as First National Bank Alaskas Palmer Branch Manager. The decade spent in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley community allowed her a front-row seat to its growth. We have a lot of unique opportunities around here, Welton said. Just in these last few years, a lot more businesses have been opening satellite offices in our town. Maybe the main office is located in Anchorage, but they see what the town is about and want to be a part of things. Its good for business here in Palmer. Welton has worked at First National for more than 25 years, helping customers in Anchorage, Homer and Wasilla as well as Palmer. An early fascination with numbers is what initially turned Welton on to banking. Math was my favorite subject in school, she said. An interest in accounting and finance helped me realize how much I enjoy helping people reach their banking goals. Count Body in Balance Physical Therapys Anne Thomas among those people Welton enjoys helping. It didnt take long for the local banking expert to recognize what BusinessManager for Healthcare could do for Thomass business, which includes the neighboring Active Soles performance shoe store. BusinessManager took care of a whole range of challenges for Anne, Welton said. She could access money the businesses earned more quickly and make decisions to keep her business moving forward. Once we sat down and talked over all the options, she was ready to take a look at it. Thomas became a BusinessManager customer in February 2014. For her part, Welton has always been particularly enthusiastic about working with customers in the healthcare industry. She specializes in introducing customers to services and products like lease programs for specialized equipment, electronic recordkeeping and commercial real estate loans for new offices, expansions and remodels. Now, BusinessManager for Healthcare offers added value and convenience to Weltons customers. As banking experts, anything we can do to see our customers and communities thrive will always remain a motivating factor for me, Welton said. BusinessManager is just one of many of First Nationals services Im proud to offer. No matter what, were always here to help. Contact Welton today at or 907-746-8904.
