Mike Hawthorne
First Montana Bank, market president
A board member since spring 2012, Mike Hawthorne brings an expertise in all things commercial financing. He also brings a hard-earned appreciation for working oneself into a professional office by starting at the ground level (or basement, actually), and for the people - the individuals - who are the heart and soul of any business, whether his clients or his bank.
An Anaconda native, Hawthorne worked his way through The University of Montana to a degree in business administration by tending bar at the Mo Club. There he learned to talk with anybody about anything. "I learned to deal with people, communicate with people, when to change the energy level, when to be firm," he said.
"I really enjoy building my relationships with my clients," Hawthorne said. "I take my role as their banker and lender seriously and it's important to me to go beyond the numbers and get to know and understand them as people. When he's working with a small business or want-to-be entrepreneur, some of whom have no idea how to read an income or P&L statement, he does not forget his time as a bartender and cold caller. "I understand their struggles, and I know that a strong, supportive community and a good banking relationship go a long way toward business success," he said.
Hawthorne noted he hopes also to learn more about the political issues behind business in Missoula.
"I also hope to develop deeper relationships with other business leaders in the community," he added.
"In these economic times, businesses have had to face some difficult decisions. If you conduct yourself with integrity and believe in the decisions you're making, you can be resilient. I anticipate that as a board, we'll be faced with challenges and possibly heated discussion and disagreements, but if we focus on our shared goal of enhancing the Missoula business community, we can thrive as an organization."
Outside of banking and the Chamber, Hawthorne dedicates time to the Campfire board and Sentinel Kiwanis. Or you'll find him on the river fly rod in hand … he also enjoys hunting and fine microbrews.
