Our Story

The Gateway story

Gateway Bank represents a return to how banking used to be, where the staff knew everyone by name and treated you like a person instead of a number. We bring this nostalgic approach into modern times and strive to offers the best of both worlds: the local, personal attention you want, plus a wide variety of products and services to meet your needs.

When Gateway Bank started in 2007, we had a vision of building a bank for locals, by locals. After 10+ years, one great recession, and many industry changes, we’re proud to still serve as Mesa’s only independent, hometown bank and a trusted partner for customers across the Valley. Our core values and passion for the community continue to drive everything we do. We treat our customers and team like family, spend one-on-one time with you, and invest in the East Valley.

While our Arizona community bank is located in Mesa, our service extends much further. With a large network of partnering ATMs, as well as added conveniences like Remote Deposit for businesses, it’s easy for people all over Phoenix to experience the Gateway difference.
