We’re pleased to announce that Junior Roman has joined Bank of Tucson as Vice President and Relationship Manager. This former Chicago White Sox professional minor league player is batting for our team, now!
Junior comes to us by way of Bank of America, where he served as Financial Center Manager, and Tucson Old Pueblo Credit Union before that. In total, he has 13 years of banking experience.
Junior, who has risen quickly through the ranks during his banking career, attributes his success to going the extra mile to support his clients.
“I really care about all of them,” he says. “They see me as an advisor and become confident taking my advice.”
In fact, it was Junior’s close business relationships with his clients that led him to Bank of Tucson. After he heard about our bank and culture, and even lost some deals to us, he says he jumped at the opportunity to join us when a position opened up.
In addition to his work with Bank of Tucson, Junior is pursuing a degree in business management and finance with an eye toward further developing a long-term career in banking and helping Bank of Tucson grow.
Fluent in English and Spanish, Junior says his minor league baseball experience allowed him to learn about American culture. Originally from the Dominican Republic, Junior learned about differences with food, language, social habits and more.
Since moving to Arizona, he has always been eager to engage with his Tucson community, He has volunteered with the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, Pima Probation Partnership, the Eric Hyde foundation, the Boys & Girls Club of Tucson and Youth on Their Own.
As for his hobbies, it’s no surprise that he counts baseball among them. Two of his three sons play baseball, Junior coaches a Little League team and he’s a volunteer for professional baseball clinic for kids of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.
We’re excited to have such a well-rounded, dedicated professional joining our team. Welcome, Junior.
