New branch managers are at the helm for First National Bank Alaska

New Branch Managers are at the helm of three First National Bank Alaska branches after the bank’s Board of Directors announced recent promotions and appointments.

Syl Fowlis was appointed Branch Manager at the Federal Branch in downtown Anchorage. Originally from Gambia, Fowlis has worked in banking for more than a decade with roles as a Teller, Personal Banker, Business Development Officer and Branch Manager.

“The Federal Branch is unique because of its location and connection to many employees from federal agencies,” Fowlis said. “Our bank creates lasting relationships with those customers and I look forward to doing so with many more.”

Bill Kaltschnee is the Branch Manager at the South Center Branch in midtown Anchorage. He’s spent more than 19 years working in Anchorage’s financial industry, including the last three at First National. He said First National’s local decision making makes all the difference.

“When a customer has a financial need, I know we can get the answers for them right here, right now,” Kaltschnee said. “We’re going to do what’s best for the customer.”

Karlyn Moyer is the Branch Manager at the Muldoon Branch in East Anchorage. An Air Force veteran, Moyer previously held the same position at the Federal Branch and joined First National in 1997.
