“Last year’s contest in Arizona was a huge success thanks to so many great entries including local entertainment venues, small retail stores and service providers,” said Kevin Classen, FirstBank’s West Valley president. “We’re excited to see who wins this year since $20,000 can go a long way in helping a local company grow and succeed.”
“The number of responses and effort put into these video submissions blew us away and showed the strong determination these business owners have,” said John Ikard, CEO of FirstBank. “As a community bank, it’s important we support businesses that play a key role in job creation and economic development. This contest is just one way we help local companies grow.”
