It all started from the humble remnants of an old tire shop on Colfax Avenue. Citywide Banks opened our doors in 1963 as Aurora National Bank. Our founders were determined to set a new standard for business banking in Colorado. With a keen understanding of the small business owner’s financial needs, they set out to create a bank that offered the service, expertise and products often reserved for larger businesses.
Vince Schmitz co-founded Citywide Banks in 1963 with a management style and a strategic vision that highlighted integrity, fairness, and service that exceeds expectations. He also believed the bank and its employees had an important responsibility to give back to our local community. He instilled these ideals in every new employee.
During the mid-1990’s, Vince tapped his sons, Marty Schmitz and Jeff Schmitz, to assume management of the bank’s daily operations and ensure his legacy would prosper for many years to come.
Today, Citywide Banks is a family operated bank with $1.3 billion in assets and 12 branches across Colorado’s Front Range.
Unlike national banks, Citywide Banks is an independent, family owned business where high values and client needs are our guideposts rather than public stockholders. That has created a unique banking culture that continues to benefit our clients, our employees, and our Colorado community.
Citywide Banks is very concerned with client confidentiality, but does bank a number of Denver’s larger industry leaders.
