Matt Smeby

VP/Commercial Banker

What I enjoy most about working at Bell is the culture and mutual respect shared by everyone. It makes it easy to keep the focus on our customers and providing them what they need.

In my position, I support the success and growth of businesses in Colorado, either by directly serving customers or as a resource consulting on best practices for funding and deposit options that fit what a business needs. I work directly with business owners and their executive teams to provide banking services that support their operations and growth.

My favorite part of my job is meeting business owners to see how they operate and gain an understanding of what they need to provide a funding structure that best fits their goals and operations.

Originally from Seattle, Wash., I earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Carroll College in Helena, Mont., and an MBA from Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. I started my commercial banking career in 2010 as a credit analyst, and in 2022, I received training through the Denver Leadership Foundation’s Impact Denver leadership class.

My wife, Laura, and I live in Centennial, Colo., and have 5 children. Outside of work, I enjoy fly fishing, coaching my kids’ sports teams and playing hockey.
