First National Bank Alaska’s Board of Directors recently announced the appointment of Zach Frain (NMLS# 404670) to Mortgage Loan Originator III and Loan Officer.
Frain, who worked for First National originally in 2005, returns to the bank with nearly 15 years of local mortgage lending experience.
“Coming back to First National after all these years really brings everything full circle,” said Frain. “I’m happy to contribute as part of the bank’s already stellar mortgage lending team.”
Frain began his banking journey as a teenager, when he purchased his first home.
“I learned the value of hard work and dedication at a young age by paying off my first mortgage, which was financed by First National,” said Frain.
Over the years, Frain has cultivated an in-depth knowledge of the mortgage industry, working in loan and mortgage servicing and originating. Every day, Frain applies this knowledge to help his customers make informed decisions as they navigate the home-buying and refinancing processes.
“My work is important to myself, the bank and my community,” said Frain. “I take pride in helping my fellow Alaskans succeed, providing them with the insight they need to find their dream home.”
Alaskan-owned and -operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and branches in 18 communities throughout the state, and by providing banking services to meet their needs across the nation and around the world. In 2018, Alaska Business readers voted the bank the “Best of Alaska Business” in the Best Place to Work category for the third year in a row and as best Corporate Citizen for the second, and American Banker recognized First National as a “Best Bank to Work For.” In January 2018, MSN.com named First National the most admired company in the state.
