Altabank, Division of Glacier Bank, Utah’s largest community bank has opened a second branch in St. George. Located at 1434 River Road, the River Road Branch extends the bank’s presence in St. George and Washington County with an easy to access location on the city’s East side.
“Our customers in St. George and Washington County have been asking us to open more branches in the area and considering where the city is growing, River Road offered the most convenient location for current and new customers,” said Terry Grant, Altabank President. “The Southeast corner of Utah is a priority for Altabank. The growth is unquestioned, and with that comes increased need for business and retail banking services.”

A spokesperson for the bank confirms that Altabank will continue to increase its presence in Washington and Iron Counties.
The River Road branch is managed by Kandice Hansen. Ms. Hansen has more than 30 years of banking experience in St. George.
