First National Bank of the Rockies becomes Bank of the San Juans
September 5, 2014
Ten First National Bank of the Rockies branches were renamed Bank of the San Juans following an acquisition by Montana-based Glacier Bancorp Inc., according to a news release.
According to the release, customers will notice few changes at the Grand Junction, Steamboat Springs, Craig, Hayden, Meeker, Rangely and Oak Creek banking offices.
"We are a true community bank with small-town Colorado roots and values that are very similar to First National Bank of the Rockies," said Bank of the San Juans founder and President Art Chase. "You're going to get some of the benefits of dealing with a larger bank when you are a Bank of the San Juans customer, but you're still going to get the true benefit of a bank that genuinely values customer service above all else."
Bank of the San Juans is a Durango-based community bank that offers the personal service of a small bank with the resources and benefits of a large one, the release stated. Founded in 1998, the bank has grown to include 13 branches in communities along with more than 350 miles of the Western Slope of Colorado from Durango to Steamboat Springs.
