Grand Mountain Bank appoints Eric Anderson president of Fraser branch

FRASER – Grand Mountain Bank, FSB, President and Chief Executive Officer Frank DeLay today announced the promotion of Eric D. Anderson to President of the Fraser Branch of Grand Mountain Bank.

“We are delighted to be able to add Eric to our Grand Mountain Bank team,” said Grand Mountain Bank President and CEO, Frank DeLay. “He brings with him an excellent blend of credit risk analysis skills, a history of building loyal customer relationships, strong strategic planning skills, and four years of prior commercial lending experience here in Grand County,” DeLay added.

Anderson received his undergraduate degree in Finance from the University of Cincinnati and is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Madison Graduate School of Banking. With more than nine years of banking experience under his belt, Anderson’s financial experience runs the gamut from Credit Analyst to Community Bank President to Vice President of Commercial Lending.

A four-year resident of Grand County, Anderson has played an active role in the community having served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Granby Chamber of Commerce, the Grand County Builders’ Association and the Legacy Park Homeowners Association. He is also active with his wife Francine and their three children ages 2, 4, and 14. Anderson’s primary focus in leading the Fraser team will be to strengthen existing banking relationships, build on the strong deposit base and grow the loan portfolio.

Outgoing vice president and branch manager Will Arduino became a Grand County resident in 2002 following his early retirement from a 23-year career with Hewlett-Packard in Fort Collins.

Arduino worked as the Development Officer for the Grand County Rural Health Network for six months doing fundraising and joined Wells Fargo Bank in Winter Park in 2003 as the Business Relationship Manager working on commercial lending. He left Wells Fargo for Grand Mountain Bank in September of 2007 to become the Vice President of Business Development.

During his time with Grand Mountain Bank, he was involved in teaching financial literacy to elementary school students in Granby and Fraser and wrote a weekly column on financial literacy for the Sky-Hi Daily News for a year.

He has been active with the Colorado Headwaters Chapter of Trout Unlimited, serving on the Board of Directors for the last couple of years; is a charter member and past president of the Winter Park Fraser Valley Rotary Club and was named Rotarian of the Year in 2009.

After his father-in-law passed away in 2009, Arduino and his wife Cindee relocated to Loveland in December to be closer to her mother. “

Although I have continued my job with Grand Mountain Bank, it’s a long commute,” he said. Arduino said he plans to continue to work once he’s fully relocated in Loveland, but has nothing lined up as yet.
