Vice President/Combined Regional Branch Manager - Kenai
Karl Heinz is proud to be a main character in a home-grown Alaska success story.
“This is where I grew up and it’s my home,” he said.
Heinz’s deep understanding of the state, how it works and the people in it help make him a valued First National Bank Alaska banker.
“From the second I met Karl, I’ve been nothing but impressed,” said Salamatof Native Association, Inc. (SNAI) President and CEO Chris Monfor said. “He makes himself available whether on the phone or in person and is very good at communicating the bank’s points.
“It is easy to work with him.”
Growing up, Heinz went to school in Anchorage and worked summers at his family’s hunting and fishing lodge near Kodiak.
After earning his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Alaska Anchorage, he heard about First National’s management training program.
“The program was a great fit,” Heinz said.
After completing the program, and with a new-found knowledge of how the banking world works, Heinz worked at the bank’s Valdez Branch, Kodiak Branch and Glennallen Branch.
As time went on, Heinz used both his lending expertise and management know-how to lead the Haines Branch for four years and the Eagle River Branch for three years.
Today, Heinz serves as regional branch manager and is based at the bank’s Kenai Branch. He worked closely with SNAI in its venture to partner up and open Williwaw in downtown Anchorage.
“The Williwaw project is a perfect example of Alaskans working together with our bank to make the state a special place to work and live,” Heinz said.Contact Heinz (NMLS No. 685910) today at KHeinz@FNBAlaska.com or 907-283-6801.
