After receiving his bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Iowa, Scott Zurborg began his career as a bank examiner with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2012. Over his 10-year tenure with the Federal Reserve, he led several community bank examinations, small-shell holding company inspections and large foreign bank supervisory events.

In 2017, Zurborg was afforded the opportunity to study at GSBC and completed the program in 2019. In early 2022, he decided it was time to explore the “other side” of banking and joined Availa Bank as an SVP of Risk Management and Information Security Officer. In this capacity, Zurborg works toward standing up a formal enterprise risk management program as well as leveraging his experience supervising numerous community banks and GSBC education to support the bank’s strategic initiatives for years to come.
