Russell B. Syme

Assistant Vice President, Commercial Financing

Trust builder. Dependable advisor. Educator.

Russell has been a part of the First National Financial commercial team for the past eight years, and has originated more than $1 billion in commercial financing.

For Russell, building and sustaining trust creates a relationship where knowledge, experience and goals can be shared.

Russell sees himself as more than a lender. He’s a specialist that advises. He helps clients make decisions by providing analysis and trusted opinions. He educates on the financing process to give clients more objectivity in their evaluations.

Working at First National, Russell feels confident and encouraged to play a dual role for clients. He’s the lender that gets the deals done quickly and competently, but he’s also the trusted business consultant that puts clients, their goals and their growth first.
