2 HIGH ROAD TAKING THE Photo: Keira Clark In 1973, a small group of friends and associates opened Roaring Fork Bank in Carbondale, Colorado, with $250,000 in capital. That started a growth trajectory of 38 bank branches in 28 Colorado communities, creating what is now known as Alpine Bank. In 2018, Alpine commemorates the legacy of 45 years in business. While the growth represents a lot of change, the founding principles of our organization have remained exactly the same. Reecting on the past four and a half decades, we celebrate the pioneering spirit and innovative business leadership of that original establishing team: Directors Bill Vollbracht, Rodney Slifer, Wally DeBeque and Ernie Gianinetti—along with longstanding Chairman Bob Young. Community investment and volunteerism are at the heart of all we do. And even as our footprint now spans much of the state—from the Western Slope to the Front Range—the same core business and community practices that resonate in Delta also ring true in Denver, just as they do from Frisco to Fruita. Five fundamental values, identied 45 years ago, remain our guideposts to this day: Independence, Communities, Compassion, Integrity and Loyalty. In short, we treat all our customers and our communities the way that we like to be treated ourselves. In 2018, we continue with the construction of two new branches. Alpine Bank Boulder and Denver Tech Center will complement our current Front Range locations at Denver's Cherry Creek and Union Station. On the following pages, we prole some partner trailblazers. Each is part of the history of Alpine Bank as a customer, community leader, entrepreneur or visionary. Thanks for sharing in our 45-year trailblazing celebration. And as always, thank you for placing your trust in us.
