Nicklos, Whitbeck take on new First National roles
First National Bank Alaska’s Board of Directors recently appointed a new Branch Manager at the North Star Branch and a Loan Servicing Supervisor in the Accounting Unit.
With nine years of banking experience, Danielle Nicklos is the new Branch Manager at the North Star Branch on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. Nicklos has previously worked as a Teller, Customer Service Representative, Personal Banker and Operations Supervisor.
At North Star, she will be responsible for business development, consumer loans, branch operations and customer service.
“Working at the branch on base offers a unique opportunity to provide our military personnel and their families with the local services expertise to help meet their banking needs,” Nicklos said.
Debra Whitbeck is the Accounting Unit’s Loan Servicing Supervisor. She will oversee a team of six who are responsible for ensuring accurate and timely servicing of the bank's loan portfolio and the production of loan documentation relating to the opening, servicing and closing of all loans. Her team also ensures loans and agreements comply with state and federal laws, regulations and bank lending policies and procedures.
Whitbeck’s banking career began in 1988.
“Family is the most important thing in my life,” Whitbeck said. “So it’s quite meaningful to come to work every day and help Alaskan families meet their lending needs, whether for buying a home or expanding a business.”
