In this episode, I chat with Dale Buxton of AltaBank (formerly Lewiston State Bank) in Lewiston, UT. Dale has been with the bank for over 30 years and in that time has spent time in pretty much every role, including President. Dale and I talk about his background and the history of Lewiston State Bank. We talk about the changes he’s seen in the banking industry generally and in rural banking specifically. We talk about the opportunities and challenges facing rural banks and small businesses and we end, as always, with the Road Trip Music Question.
