Bank of American Fork’s locally-owned, locally-invested model a perfect fit for vibrant and growing St. George
On August 18 Bank of American Fork will open the doors to its new St. George branch at 335 East St. George Blvd. Bank of American Fork has operated a mortgage-loan office in St. George since last year. The bank’s commitment to small-town service has been a natural fit in the St. George community, and now Bank of American Fork will be able to offer the technology, products and services of a big bank to the consumers and business owners of the St. George area.
“Bank of American Fork is excited to offer community banking services to the people living in and businesses building up the St. George area,” said Richard Beard, president and CEO of Bank of American Fork. “We have a strong customer base in Washington County. We are excited to offer our customers, the community and business owners the big-city banking we’ve been building for more than 100 years. Our strong, locally-owned community bank will be valuable by providing personalized services to this vibrant area of Utah.”
The bank already has a mortgage-loan officer, Chris Palmer, and some additional associates in the mortgage-loan office that will work at the new branch. In addition, the bank has hired Bradley Stucki as branch manager, John Allen as a business development officer and Mike Draper as operations manager. Stucki and Allen bring years of Washington County experience to the new branch.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of the Bank of American Fork branch in St. George,” Stucki said. “I love Washington County and I’m pleased that we’ll be able to provide the services this community needs so we can be a vital part of the economy here.”
It’s rare for a business to last 100 years, and Bank of American Fork is still locally-owned and invested in the local economy. Its community-banking model has survived and thrived in the 14 communities it serves.
The new branch will open for business on August 18, and a grand opening will be held later in the month. You can reach the new office at 435-319-6900. For other questions, please feel free to call 800-815-BANK or visit us at www.bankaf.com .
