First Foundation Bank Appoints Graham as SVP, Corporate Banking Director

May 06, 2021, 07:19 AM

First Foundation Inc., a financial services company with two wholly owned operating subsidiaries, First Foundation Advisors and First Foundation Bank, announced the appointment of Aric Graham as Senior Vice President, Corporate Banking Director.

In his new role, Graham will be responsible for building and leading the Corporate Banking platform across all regions of the bank. He will assemble and guide a team of Corporate Bankers to serve business clients while managing the bank’s credit quality.

This move is a result of the success First Foundation has experienced as a part of its three-year pivot into a more commercial-focused regional banking platform.

“We are excited to welcome Aric to First Foundation Bank,” said Michael Berry, SVP, Director of Commercial Banking. “Aric brings with him years of experience in corporate and commercial banking as well as a great understanding of the Las Vegas region.”

Graham comes to First Foundation Bank with over 15 years of banking experience with his most recent role as Corporate Banking Manager responsible for opening Umpqua Bank’s de novo corporate banking office in Las Vegas, NV. Prior to running the Las Vegas corporate banking office for Umpqua, Graham served in a variety of roles focused on commercial banking with positions at U.S. Bank and First National Bank of Valparaiso. He is a graduate of Pacific Coast Banking School.

Graham will be based out of the Las Vegas office and is building his team in the region. He will be joined by Joe Kucik, newly appointed Senior Vice President, Corporate Banker, who will help grow commercial loans and deposits in the region.
