Denver, CO–(PRWeb)–International Bank and its holding company, InBankshares, Corp. (“InBankshares”), announces that the bank’s name has changed to InBank. The new name reflects the 100-year legacy of International Bank with a modern vision for the future as the bank implements its robust growth strategy in the Denver Metro Area and legacy markets.
International Bank was established in Raton, N.M. on April 9, 1918 by Joe DiLisio, a young Italian immigrant, to meet the needs of business owners and individuals in the community who had immigrated from 28 different countries. In June of 2018, the bank was purchased by a group of seasoned banking executives and today operates seven branches throughout northern New Mexico and Colorado as InBank.
“We are proud to carry on the legacy of International Bank, which was founded by Mr. DiLisio on the notion of inclusivity. Today, the InBank name represents that same idea of inclusion and trusted relationships with our customers,” says Ed Francis, CEO, InBank and InBankshares. “As we celebrate the 101 birthday of the bank this week, we intend to carry on the entrepreneurial spirit that the bank was founded on and live out our mission to positively impact the lives of our customers, communities and associates as a relationship-driven community bank.”
InBank’s executive management team, which combines over 150 years of expertise in community and regional banking, includes Edward Francis as Chief Executive Officer, Dennis Santistevan as Chief Financial Officer/Chief Operating Officer, David Brown as Chief Risk Officer and Jeff Huckabee as Chief Information Officer. The management team also includes a team of senior commercial and private bankers with deep roots in the Denver Metro Area business community and legacy markets.
“We are differentiating ourselves from other banks in the marketplace as we blend our rich history with an energetic and talented team of bankers who have made a personal financial investment into our organization,” says Francis. “Our bankers understand what its like to be an owner of a business and are committed to delivering personalized service to customers with a sharp focus on certainty of execution. This value proposition is resonating loudly with business owners who continue to be affected by the consolidation of their community banks and is what separates us from the larger regional and national banks. Our ability to offer sound advice and prompt decisions provides incredible value for our customers and a tremendous opportunity for InBank to position itself as the go-to commercial and private bank in Colorado and New Mexico.”
