ColoradoBiz CEO of the Year 2015 finalist: Mark White

He's bullish on future growth


Published:

President, Northstar Bank

Since the 2013 merger of Community Bank and the Bank at Broadmoor resulted in Northstar, White has melded the personal touch of a community bank with the deep pockets of a large financial institution. He describes banking as “barbelled,” noting, “You get small banks and very large banks and a big gap in the middle.”

To fill the void, Northstar has 20 branches in Colorado and about $750 million in assets. White is bullish on future growth: The 2016 goal is $1 billion.

White says “being genuine and sincere” defines his approach to business. “Everything goes through that filter. Never give anyone a fake laugh.” cb
