Catherine Valenzuela

SVP/Commercial Banker

I love that everyone at Bell Bank takes ownership of the customer experience. Our shared vision and values create a family environment that allows everyone to thrive. When you work with Bell, an amazing and talented team of individuals cater to your financial needs, whether business or personal. We never take a cookie-cutter approach to customer service – each client is considered important and unique.

Working in commercial banking for the past 30 years has allowed me the privilege of serving many types of customers, from manufacturers and distributors to hospitality and service industries. My specialty niches include Native American banking and all types of contractors. Helping clients with working capital, equipment financing, real estate loans, cash management and deposit investments are all part of the creative and tailored solutions I employ to help my customers meet their financial objectives.

I was honored to have been named to Arizona Business Magazine’s 2015 Most Influential Women in Arizona list and Phoenix Business Journal’s 2013 Top 25 Dynamic Women in Business list.

Originally from Madison, Wis., I majored in business at Arizona State University. I now live in Mesa, Ariz., with my husband of more than 20 years, Jerry, and our 2 “fur kids” (dogs), Annie and Haley. Outside of work, I enjoy scuba diving, international travel (I’m at 29 countries and counting!), reading and animal rescue/fostering. In my spare time, I lead a Bible study group and serve on our homeowners’ association board and the Business Development Finance Corporation.
