Do you want to feel good about the work you do every day? Join our dynamic team as our next SENIOR LENDING OFFICER (SLO) in beautiful Durango, Colorado.

Make a difference in the communities we serve as SLO at First Southwest Bank, a locally owned rural community bank and Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), one of two in Colorado, and the only CDFI bank serving the Four Corners states.

Experience in Small Business & Agriculture lending, Affordable Housing financing, and New Market Tax Credits desired. FSWB is chartered in Alamosa, Colorado and has served the San Luis Valley for over 100 years. Now operating six branches from Alamosa to Cortez, we are rural Colorado people with community at our core. We are a fast-moving team with ambitious goals all in service to the communities we serve.


The SLO provides strategic direction for the Lending Department, while also ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The SLO is responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with key stakeholders, community, and bank partners and providing responsible lending solutions to business customers, including underserved rural communities while maintaining an acceptable level of risk. The SLO is also responsible for developing and executing sales strategies to either maintain or gain clients to increase commercial lending revenue and deposit growth.
