For Women Who Mean Business Jun 27, 2011, 11:48 am By Emily Haleck

Did you know 37 percent of Utah’s private businesses are owned by women? These businesses employ over 100,000 people and account for $14 billion in sales—yet these fierce, female entrepreneurs are often overlooked by their financial institution.

Not at Bank of American Fork.

At Bank of American Fork, we know women in business because we are women in business—all 12 of our branches are run by female operations managers. And they know their customers, including our women-owned businesses ranging from restaurants to suppliers, manufacturers to retailers.

As Utah’s largest community bank, we also know Utah. We understand this state’s unique economic challenges and have experienced professionals ready to help women in business navigate their way to financial success.

But don’t take it from us. Hear it in the words of our customers:

“We were looking for a bank that still valued customer service and would be willing to meet our particular needs at The Travel Broker. Bank of American Fork was highly recommended. Julie Taylor met with us and figured out a way to meet those needs and make us feel like she valued our business. We look forward to a long relationship with Bank of American Fork and appreciate their customer service.” Connie Davis, Owner, The Travel Broker


“When Costume Craze first started out, we were having difficulty getting any type of loan from anyone. That all changed with Bank of American Fork. They were the first bank to take a chance on Costume Craze and have since helped us grow from a start-up to a thriving business with over $12 million in annual revenue. We have been happy customers—actually, more like business partners—ever since.”—Kate Maloney, CEO, Costume Craze
