ColoradoBiz CEO of the Year 2015 finalist: Mark White

He's bullish on future growth

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
