Hope Doukas

VP/Commercial Portfolio Manager

The best thing about working at Bell is that everything is focused on people. From our customers to our co-workers and community, people are at the center of everything we do.

In my position, I support our commercial lending team in analyzing new opportunities, managing our existing portfolio, working with our credit team in the underwriting process, and helping customers with any other lending or deposit needs that arise.

Originally from East Chicago, I earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and international business from Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. In 2000, I started my banking career as a teller in the Chicago metropolitan area and have since worked in various credit management and relationship lending positions. Most of my experience has been on the credit side with specialties in commercial real estate, healthcare and contractor financing.

My husband and I live in Scottsdale, Ariz. When away from the office, I’m usually hiking, cooking Greek meals, traveling and spending time with family and friends. I also love a good cup of coffee and have made it my mission to visit as many coffee shops as possible.
