FirstBank Southwest creates 15-member Banking Advisory Council

FirstBank Southwest (FBSW) created a one-of-a-kind 15-member Banking Advisory Council (BAC) to allow the bank to learn and understand the future of banking through the eyes of local high school and college students. The BAC will interact with leaders at the bank, have networking opportunities, be involved in the community and evolve professionally.

“It’s an idea I dreamed up a few years back that has finally come to fruition,” said Andy Marshall, president and CEO at FBSW. “We want to expose these folks to banking and hopefully create a new generation of bankers from people who might not have otherwise thought of banking as a career choice. We will do everything we can to learn from them as to what their generation wants in a financial services relationship and, in doing so, prepare us to evolve into the community bank of the future.”

The BAC was designed to enrich the lives of the students involved by expanding their skills for the future and to promote banking as a career. Each student is required to meet BAC responsibilities and in turn, each student will receive a $3,000 scholarship to the school of their choice.
