Micah Salinas is an Assistant Vice President, Relationship Manager for Frost in San Antonio, and the new Branch Community Leader for Frost’s Downtown and W.W. White Financial Centers.
During a career that includes seven years of banking experience, he has built a broad background in understanding and responding to the specific business and financial issues of diverse organizations throughout the community.
A native of San Antonio, it has long been a principle goal of Micah’s to give back to the San Antonio community. As a Community Leader for Frost Bank, he oversees the business development and community relations for the east-side and for downtown San Antonio, where he grew up. By helping drive economic empowerment and financial literacy to high school students, he has been able to provide substantial economic assistance to his childhood neighborhoods.
Micah’s journey to join the Frost Bank family was filled with many trials and tribulations. Even so, he never wavered from his goal to join the corporate banking group. After 2 years of setbacks and 36 total interviews, in 2010, Micah joined Frost as a personal banker. He subsequently was named regional manager in the corporate banking area, focusing on business development and account management for middle market companies and increasing awareness in the small business community on a variety of subjects including sustainable business growth. Today, responsibilities include building and nurturing Frost relationships with current and potential commercial clients, and delivering Frost’s solution-oriented service.
Micah graduated from San Antonio’s Highlands High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in business with a concentration in finance from Southwestern University.
Active in the community, he holds leadership positions in a number of local organizations. He is a member of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and The Boys and Girls Club of San Antonio Board of Directors. He also is a proud graduate of Leadership San Antonio Class XL and currently serves on the Steering Committee for Leadership San Antonio Class XLII.
As a husband and father of his three children, he has made it his personal responsibility to pass on the opportunities afforded to him by his mother. As a single mother, his mother instilled in him lessons of hard work and dedication at a young age. He credits his work ethic and success to his mother’s hard work and sacrifices that allowed him the opportunity for growth.
Micah also coaches youth basketball teams and mentors at-risk youth in the San Antonio’s inner city.
Thank you Micah for all the work you do in community and your continuing inspirational work. We salute you!
