FORT COLLINS — Collegiate Peaks Bank, a subsidiary of Montana-based Glacier Bancorp, has expanded its footprint into Northern Colorado, opening its first Fort Collins branch at 2002 Caribou Drive.
David Fritzler, CPB’s new Northern Colorado regional president, will lead the Fort Collins branch.
Collegiate Peaks Bank, which has several branches in Buena Vista and around the Denver suburbs, telegraphed its move into Northern Colorado last year when it got the go-ahead from regulators to establish a loan production office on Caribou Drive. New loan production offices often precede a branch location in new markets.
“This is a strategic market for us, and combined with our longstanding presence in Denver, southern Colorado, and the mountain communities, our new location provides the opportunity to now serve customers from Denver all the way to Wyoming,” Fritzler said in a prepared statement.
