With a progressive outlook on lending practices, Regent Bank is known as a health care private bank that has divisions in Hispanic, Tribal, and Cannabis banking. Regent Bank is known as top 10 commercial bank. “Lending is all about relationships,” Guile states. “It’s about building core relationships and meeting expectations.” For the clients he serves, Justin acts as a trusted advisor working to make the entire process more of a private banking experience. “I love coming to work every day and being able to make a difference,” he states. In 2019, Justin co-founded Lift Coffee Bar in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The Oklahoma-based coffee and wine bar located in the heart of the Cherokee nation has seen tremendous success since opening winning multiple awards for products and services.

As a business owner, banker, community leader, and member of numerous community organizations, Justin relates to the clients he serves and their constant quest of finding balance and success. “Owning a business and working a full-time job as a banker during a global pandemic, while being able to maintain balance with my career and family has been paramount,” he states.
Justin holds a business degree from Northeastern State University with an emphasis in finance management.
