Faces of Colorado Business 2022: FirstBank
FirstBank was recently named a Top Workplace by the Denver Post for the 11th consecutive year.
ColoradoBiz showcases the personalities behind the companies in a range of industries and in all stages of development, from startups to stalwarts.
Late last year, FirstBank rolled out its new strategic plan, which includes an emphasis on “Include All,” or ensuring diversity is represented at each level of the organization and more resources are provided to bolster equity and inclusion within and outside of the company. To date, 36 percent of FirstBank’s more than 2,700 employees identify as a person of color and 56 percent of the bank’s management team—from assistant manager to the C-suite—are women.
The bank recently introduced several leadership changes including promoting a group of its top-performing Executive Vice Presidents to President-level positions while also elevating its former President of Retail and Digital Banking, Kelly Kaminskas, to Chief Digital Officer, and President of Human Resources, Shannon Jones, to Chief People Officer.
“FirstBank is a big proponent of promote-from-within, and one of the many reasons our organization continues to be financially strong and perform well above industry norms is because we look to cultivate talent and grow our company internally,” said Jim Reuter, CEO of FirstBank.
The company is recognized as one of“America’s Best Top Workplaces” (receiving honors in “Culture Excellence”) by Top Workplaces, LLC, and was named a Top Workplace by the Denver Post for the 11th consecutive year.
