Bank of the San Juans began in 1998 as a start-up with Durango community investors. Over the ensuing two decades, the bank has grown into a robust organization across Colorado, with 20 locations in 14 communities and 200+ employees. In 2008, the bank joined the Glacier family of banks and operates as a division of Glacier Bank, part of Glacier Bancorp, Inc. (GBCI), a regional bank holding company headquartered in Kalispell, Montana.
Glacier proudly operates individual bank divisions that provide world-class financial services to individuals and businesses throughout the Western U.S. Glacier is a unique banking family that includes outstanding regional banks featuring great people in exceptional communities.
Each bank operates with their own management in the communities they know well, supported by the considerable experience and shared resources of an entire network of similarly-minded community banks.
This is why the Glacier family has received numerous awards for stability and soundness over the years, and has repeatedly ranked among the top 10% in the nation for financial strength. We have been similarly recognized by Forbes and Money magazines.
Bank of the San Juans is proud to have been invited to join the Glacier family in 2008. This has enabled us to continue serving our local communities with the same personal attention and friendly approach our customers have come to expect, all with the added resources of our much larger banking family.
