Alpine Banks of Colorado has just announced its next big move — expansion to the Front Range in 2013. A site in lower downtown Denver has been selected for the new Alpine Bank location with plans to begin serving the public by the third quarter of 2013.
Norm Franke, a 30-year Alpine Bank veteran, has been named regional president of the forthcoming Front Range region. Franke is well prepared for the challenge; in 1991, he opened the first Mesa County Alpine Bank location and successfully grew the bank's presence in the region over the next 22 years.
Taking over as the bank's Mesa County regional president is 23-year employee Clay Tufly. Tufly began his career with Alpine in 1990 and in addition to managing many Alpine Bank locations over the years, he has been president of the downtown Grand Junction location for the past eight years. Tufly was born and raised in Grand Junction and graduated from Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University) with a degree in business management and an emphasis in finance.blog comments powered by Disqus
