Alpine Bank announces officer promotions

Alpine Banks in the Colorado River Valley would like to congratulate the following people on their recent promotions:

Susie Wright to assistant vice president, HR/Training

Depositors scream when they earn 1 percent on their retirement money, but they benefit by borrowing at lower rates than they’ve ever seen in their lifetimes, so probably nobody’s getting ripped off.

Susie grew up in Bogalusa, La., where her vast family still resides. She began her career with Alpine Bank in 1998 as a teller at the Glenwood Springs location, and has since held many positions including CSR, regional marketing director, lender, trainer, HR assistant and now training manager. Susie is very active in her community and currently serves on the Center for Financial Training board, as parade coordinator for the Silt HeyDays committee, and as a member of the Alpine Bank Relay for Life team. She and her husband Toby have two grown sons, Andy and Josh, and just celebrated 23 blissful years of marriage. Susie enjoys reading, gardening, hiking and spending as much time as possible with her family.

Tom Snyder to IT officer

Originally from Ogden, Iowa, Tom attended Iowa State University and holds an Associate of Specialized Technology in Electronics Engineering Technology from the National Education Center. Tom joined Alpine Bank in 2008 as a network engineer and currently manages the bank’s network and system administrators, technicians, help desk personnel and physical/information security personnel. Tom is a member of the Battlement Mesa Kiwanis Club and enjoys camping and fishing with his wife, Teresa, and children, Hunter and Tristan.
