Alpine Bank executive named to state board

Glen Jammaron, president and vice chairman of Alpine Bank, has been appointed to the Colorado Banking Board.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper appointed Jammaron to serve as a representative for bankers west of the continental divide on the board, which serves as the policy and rule-making authority for the Division of Banking.

“I am honored to be selected to represent Western Colorado communities and community banks across Colorado,” Jammaron said. “Community banks continue to play a unique and important role in our state as they are operated locally and are relationship-driven. They thrive when their local communities thrive.”

The nine-member board consists of five members who are executive officers of commercial banks, an executive officer of a trust company, an executive officer of a money transmitter business and two public members with expertise in finance through their experiences in business, industry, agriculture or education.

Jammaron has worked for Alpine Bank for 30 years, joining the bank in 1985 after graduating from Western State College. He has served in a variety of executive positions with the bank, including branch president, head of central operations and as a long-term board member.

Based in Glenwood Springs, Alpine Bank operates 38 locations across Colorado and employs more than 600 people. With $2.7 billion in assets, Alpine Bank was recently elevated to a 5-star rating for financial strength by the BauerFinancial bank rating firm.
