Tim R. Bruckner is executive vice president, divisional chief credit officer, for Alliance Bank of Arizona. He manages subsidiary specialty lending within corporate credit, credit regulatory compliance, and Basel-based risk rating methodology and management.


Mr. Bruckner’s lifelong interest in commercial banking began right out of college during a period in which Nebraska’s state-chartered banks required individual licensing. His first-ever application was declined for the reason that he was “too young.” He joined Alliance Bank of Arizona in 2016, bringing more than 25 years of banking industry experience.


Mr. Bruckner is the board chair for Native American Connections.


He graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Creighton University.
