Moderator: Desiree Outcalt, VP Commercial Bank, Bell Bank 

In her role as a commercial banker, Desirae specializes in helping those who have complex deposit and treasury needs. She enjoys meeting new people and businesses, learning about what they need from their bank and then executing that course for them.

Originally from Tacoma, Wash., Desirae worked her way up in finance – starting as a part-time teller at an Arizona credit union and eventually running its second largest branch! Since 2006, Desirae served as a bank branch manager, operations manager for back-end processing, treasury sales, and most recently as a business banker at Parkway Bank prior to joining Bell Bank in 2020.

Having worked in branches, operations and treasury, Desirae has a deep understanding of regulatory and compliance requirements.  Desirae is also AAP-certified, which means she is able to provide further value helping clients remain compliant, understand electronic processes, and become more efficient and cost-effective when paying their employees or vendors.

Desirae has been recognized as an Arizona community activist and trailblazer and was named to the list of Most Influential Women in Arizona in 2017 by Arizona Business magazine.
