Brian Gompers, a Senior Vice President and Commercial Banking Relationship Manager, works primarily in the 20 county area of Western North Carolina helping commercial clients fulfill their business needs and plans for the future.
He specializes in banking solutions including commercial loans, construction loans, lines of credit, and treasury opportunities, and he says his approach involves addressing the “what ifs” to ensure that no detail slips through the cracks.
He has handled a $24MM construction/permanent loan for a new hotel; a $6.0MM multi-phase townhouse construction project, a $3.0MM equipment and working capital line of credit for a manufacturer; and a $13MM construction loan for a 40-unit condominium project.
Brian has been in the banking industry for more than 30 years, with significant commercial and corporate lending experience across the Carolinas.
He earned a Bachelor of Science in Economics/Business Administration and Finance from Pfeiffer University and is a graduate of leadership programs in Greenville, South Carolina; Asheville, North Carolina; and Furman University.
As a former college soccer player, Brian also enjoys giving back to the next generation on and off the field. He serves as an assistant coach for the men and women varsity soccer teams at Asheville Christian Academy and as a high school and college referee with the National Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association (NISOA). In addition, he serves as a board member for Western Carolina Rescue Ministries and a kids worship leader at Brookstone Church.
Brian and his wife have three adult children and live in Arden, North Carolina.
