FineMark's Arizona Office Prepares for a Move


FineMark has been operating out of the temporary space since opening its first office in Arizona in May of this year. And while the bank is new to Arizona, its 7 member team is not. The group has years of banking and investment experience in the Phoenix area.

The office is led by David Highmark, who left Northern Trust in 2011, after a 26 year career. Highmark was searching for the right bank to help serve his client athletes in a newly formed sports management company (HSM). That bank turned out to be FineMark National Bank & Trust and within a short time, Highmark agreed to get back in the banking business as President of Arizona operations.

Highmark said, “The professionals at FineMark were delighted to provide the required level of service for my HSM clientele. FineMark, which was founded in 2007, has assets approaching $500 million and manages over $800 million with 7 locations in Florida. The President & CEO is a personal friend and former Northern Trust Executive. He shares my same commitment to delivering the highest level of service, while building deep relationships. FineMark has been awarded six consecutive 5-Star Superior Ratings from the nation's leading independent bank rating and research firm (Bauer Financial*) and I have complete confidence in the company and its people.”

In April of 2012, Highmark Sports Management merged with FineMark and the group now offers an array of banking, trust and investment services to clients in the Phoenix area as well as to professional athletes around the country.

If you’re interested in meeting the team, the FineMark office is temporarily located at 8777 N. Gainey Center Drive in Gainey Ranch. In early 2013, operations will move into a permanent office at 7600 East Doubletree Ranch Road in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Feel free to contact David and his team at any time.
