The local business banking team at Elevations provides a consultative approach to help you realize long-term success for your business. Get to know one of our newest team members, Nadine Trujillo-Rogers, in this Q&A.
How long have you been with Elevations, and which locations do you serve?
I was the first Business Banker hired with Elevations before we launched business banking services in 2017. I serve our members in northern Colorado, specifically the Fort Collins and Loveland communities.
What is your banking experience?
I have been in banking for over 27 years. Most of my career has been in banking management, working with branch teams and helping small businesses. I grew up in a small business family. I was born and raised in Greeley, and my dad has been a small business owner there for several years. I love helping people, especially business owners, and business banking has been my ultimate passion.
How would you define your role?
I work with businesses to help provide them with working capital lines of credit, loans for commercial real estate, equipment and vehicles. I also work with businesses who have more complicated business accounts and treasury services needs. Most of all, I am a trusted advisor regarding their finances.
What sets Elevations and you apart from other banks and bankers?
In my experience, Elevations is different in that we genuinely care about the member experience. Our not-for-profit, member-owned standing allows us to give so much more to our communities monetarily and by volunteering.
Do you have any advice to businesses selecting a financial institution?
Most financial institutions have similar products and services. Business owners should focus on developing a relationship with a business banker and financial institution that coincides with their business values. Your financial institution is one of the most important entities that you will partner with during the life cycle of your business.
What is your favorite local nonprofit?
I am the Treasurer for the Midtown Fort Collins Business Association — we help businesses through education, collaboration and advocacy. I also partner with several wonderful nonprofits in northern Colorado that focus on mental health such as Healing Warriors, Vets 4 Life and Alliance for Suicide Prevention.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love Colorado. I like to do anything that I can to enjoy this beautiful state, such as hiking and camping in the summer. In the winter, I hike and ski. At the top of my bucket list is traveling more and camping in our beautiful national parks throughout the U.S.
