Northrim Opens New Branch in Fairbanks
Northrim Bank has opened a second branch in Fairbanks, which was designed with a focus on customer interaction.
Northrim Bank has opened its newest branch: the Fairbanks West Community Branch is located at 3637 Airport Way, Suite 110.
“We are pleased to be opening a second location in Fairbanks. We have a strong customer base throughout Interior Alaska and look forward to having a new option for customers to bank with us,” says Joe Schierhorn, Northrim bank chairman, president, and CEO.
“This was the right opportunity to expand in the Fairbanks community and a good complement to our Fairbanks Financial Center.”
This new location is the fourth branch to use Northrim’s “branch of the future” blueprint, where the focus of the branch is on customer interaction within a more efficient footprint. The streamlined design continues the bank’s goal of personalized service, as part of its vision to be Alaska’s premier bank of choice.
Each branch’s design incorporates the natural beauty of the area. The Fairbanks West Community Branch features the Northern Lights and the night sky the Interior is known for. Art throughout the branch is from local, Alaskan photographer Debbit Shiffer and highlights the uniqueness of the state.
The Fairbanks West Community Branch brings Northrim Bank to seventeen branches throughout Alaska and expands its reach in Fairbanks into a new neighborhood.
“We are excited to welcome customers to our new Fairbanks West Community Branch,” says Schierhorn. “Having a location in this area of town allows us to meet the diverse needs of the neighborhood and our customers. We look forward to engaging with the community and meeting our new neighbors.”
The branch opened February 8 and is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
