Business Buzz: Flint Dillon taking on new responsibilities at local bank
Flint Dillon was named branch manager of Bank of the San Juan’s Craig location, 600 Yampa Ave., in July and has embraced the new responsibilities in his first six months on the job.
Previously the operations officer and a personal banker, Dillon has been with the bank for seven-and-a-half years. His new role includes keeping up the branch’s maintenance and appearance as well as training employees.
He credits his success to the team of 14 at the Craig branch.
“I see myself as a leader because I can’t do this job without the team that I have,” Dillon said. “They really are the heartbeat of the bank.”
That’s evidenced by Dillon’s win in the Best Customer Service category and three Bank of the San Juans employees sweeping the Best Bank Teller category in the Craig Daily Press’ 2016 Best of Moffat County contest.
Dillon said he’s proud to carry out the mission of the bank, which is a division of Glacier Bancorp, Inc., a company with locations in six western states and ranked as No. 4 on the Forbes 2016 Best Banks in America list.
“I want people to know Bank of the San Juans is still your small town bank,” Dillon said, noting that it has the backing of a larger bank system to meet customers’ needs.
He also wants people to know that “we’re here for the community” by supporting local projects like elementary and high school financial literacy classes and contributing to the Moffat County Fair. That ideal is reflected in his future plans as well.
“My long-term goals are to instill the values Bank of the San Juans has always held … and make sure every single member of the bank is taken care of,” Dillon said.
His colleagues at the bank see that reflected in his daily demeanor.
“I think he’s going to do quite well,” said Paul Boyd, commercial loan officer with Craig branch. “He works well with the clients, and the staff love him.”
