John V. Evans Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of D.L. Evans Bank, is pleased to announce that D.L. Evans Bank is continuing with the Bank’s expansion into Utah with plans to open a branch in South Ogden in the spring of 2019. The branch will be opened at 3990 South Washington Boulevard in South Ogden. The branch will be a full service location offering a full range of banking products and services with decisions made locally.

John V. Evans, Jr. said: “Last year, we embarked on a historical journey by opening our first branch in Utah, located in Tremonton. The Tremonton team is having great success and when the opportunity was presented for us to open a branch in South Ogden, we knew it was the right move for our institution. We have hired a team of individuals that will be taking the lead on making the South Ogden branch a success. Bruce Ashcroft has joined the Bank as Senior Vice President Utah Area Manager. He comes to D.L. Evans Bank with extensive experience in the banking industry. David Mumm is a Vice President Commercial Loan Officer and has many years of banking experience and was previously a Vice President Relationship Manager. Kent Francis is a Vice President Commercial Loan Officer and he joins D.L. Evans Bank with many years of banking experience and relationship building in the Northern Utah area. All team members will be located at the new South Ogden Branch. We are confident that Bruce, David, and Kent will do an excellent job serving South Ogden and the surrounding areas.”

D.L. Evans Bank was founded in 1904 and has total assets in excess of $1.5 billion. The South Ogden branch will be the 31st branch for D.L. Evans Bank and the second branch in Utah. D.L. Evans Bank is a family-owned community bank with a focus of giving back to the communities we serve. While times have changed, the bank has never lost sight of the founder's vision, “That banking is really just about one thing: helping people.” That is the strength of a family-owned community bank, meaningful, long-term relationships. This is community banking.
