Bank of the Year recognizes a financial institution that carried out a tremendously successful innovation project within the past couple of years. The 2020 winner is Tri Counties Bank, headquartered in Chico, CA. Tri Counties recently implemented PrecisionLender and a LOS system and has produced strong results in loan and deposit growth since starting their digital transformation journey.

Most Philanthropic Bank of the Year recognizes a bank that has made a big social impact within their community in the past year. This year’s winner is Alpine Bank, headquartered in Glenwood Springs, CO. In 2019, Alpine Bank donated a record $4.7 million to Colorado communities, and employees volunteered more than 14,000 hours with local nonprofits.
