FirstBank Holding Company, a holding company with 17 banking locations throughout Arizona, announced the opening of its newest branch in Phoenix at 4925 N. 20th Street.

The major cross streets are 20th Street and Camelback Road. The 4,200 square-foot location officially opened in late December, and replaces a nearby older local branch, according to a press release.

Across Arizona, Colorado and California, FirstBank has more than 120 branches.

To celebrate its opening, the public is invited to attend a ribbon cutting 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 3. Appetizers and beverages will be served, and there will be giveaways including a chance to win cash prizes. The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce will be part of the ribbon cutting scheduled to occur at 5:30 p.m.

“Moving to this new location along the Camelback corridor is more convenient for our customers and helps us to become an even greater resource to our customers,” stated Bryce Lloyd, metro Phoenix president for FirstBank, in the release. “Since we entered the Phoenix market nine years ago, we’ve worked hard to make a positive impact in our local community. We’re excited that our rapid growth has allowed FirstBank to become a trusted resource to individuals, families, businesses and non-profits across the entire Phoenix metro area.”

In its short history in Arizona, FirstBank has repeatedly shown its commitment to community involvement. The commitment has been again demonstrated in just the last few months by its recent donation as the presenting sponsor of Arizona Gives Day, which raised over $2 million for Arizona non-profits in one day, the release stated.

In addition, FirstBank made a $1 million community development investment with Trellis (formerly Neighborhood Housing Services of Phoenix), an organization dedicated to making financially stable homes, neighborhoods and communities possible in Maricopa County.
