Glenwood Springs, Colo., Jan. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tom Kenning, chief administration officer for Alpine Bank, retired at the end of 2022. Since 2013, Kenning had managed back-end operations for the enterprise. His responsibilities included risk management, human resources and security. He chaired the bank’s investment committee and was a member of the wealth management, asset and liability, and loan committees. In retirement, Kenning will continue to serve as a board director, contributing to policy leadership and governance of Alpine Bank.

Kenning’s transition initiated several changes on the Alpine Bank executive team:

  • Andrew Karow, MBA — who served as chief digital officer from 2015 to 2022 — is now chief operations officer. Karow joined Alpine Bank in 1996.
  • Likewise, Glenn Davis — who served as chief retail officer until April, 2022 — is now chief development officer, tasked with attracting, recruiting, retaining and developing talent for the organization. Davis has been with Alpine Bank since 1988.
  • As Davis departed his retail officer role, Jay Rickstrew — formerly the market president of the mountain region for the bank — was promoted into the chief retail officer position in 2022. Rickstrew began his career with the bank in 1994.

“As Alpine Bank celebrates 50 years in business in 2023, it’s gratifying to have broad and deep bench strength and longevity in our leadership team,” says president Glen Jammaron. “Alpine Bank has seen significant changes in our communities and our industry over the decades, and we remain well-positioned as an employee-owned Colorado company to benefit our customers, shareholders, employees and communities long into the future.”
