ANB Announces Organization Changes for the Northern Colorado Region

Fort Collins, CO (October 11, 2018)

ANB Bank is pleased to announce a number of organizational changes for the Northern Colorado region.

ANB Bank's newest banking center in Loveland, Colo. is expected to open in January 2019. Kelso Kelly, the former Regional President of Northern Colorado, has taken the helm as the Community Bank President for the Loveland Banking Center. According to Kelso, Loveland is a growing community and is a great location for our community bank. Kelso, whose career includes 41 years in banking, said he has decided to focus his efforts and is looking forward to building new business within his hometown.

"I've had experience from the teller line to the CEO seat at a bank and at this stage in my career I really want to get back to the customer and develop business," stated Kelso. "ANB is a really terrific place to work and is supportive of this change, so I can focus on building our new banking center in Loveland. I love this business and I expect this to be the best time in my career."

The Loveland team will also include Adna Romero as the Vice President of Commercial Lending. Until the new banking center is completed, both Kelso and Adna will be based out of the ANB Bank location in Ft. Collins.

With Kelso moving into his new role and focusing on the Loveland community, ANB Bank has appointed Frankie Cole as the new Regional President for the Northern Colorado Region. Her commitment and leadership within the financial industry will contribute to advancing the growth of the bank's relationships with customers and the community.

Frankie brings direct knowledge of the bank's and customers' needs, along with 14 years of experience in banking as ANB Bank's former Community Bank President and Senior Credit Operations Officer of the Cherry Creek Banking Center. She holds a bachelor's degree in management and a minor's degree in business communication, as well as a Graduate School of Banking Certificate from the University of Colorado.

"Frankie's leadership skills and drive are assets to the entire Northern Colorado Region team," said Koger Propst, President and CEO of ANB Bank and Sturm Financial Group. "Her experience and banking expertise will help our high performing team of bankers serve the needs of our customers and develop long-standing, strong and mutually satisfying banking relationships."

Frankie is also an active member of her community. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Development Disabilities Resource Center and is a member of the Mercy Housing Mountain Plains Partnership Council.

Across the ANB footprint, the Bank has 30 banking centers serving customers in Colorado, Wyoming, and the Kansas City metro area. Its parent company, Sturm Financial Group, Inc. is headquartered in Denver Colorado and has financial strength embodied in over $2.6 billion in assets. The Bank ranks in the top 6% of banks nationwide by size. ANB is a true community bank with an unwavering commitment to excellence. It helps each of its communities prosper through investment, sponsorship, philanthropy, and employee volunteerism. It is a passion ANB has for banking that makes the difference.
