International Bank is now InBank. The institution’s new moniker reflects its 100-year legacy balanced with its vision for the future.
International Bank was established in Raton, N.M. on April 9, 1918 by Joe DiLisio, a young Italian immigrant, to meet the needs of business owners and individuals in the community who had immigrated from 28 different countries.
In June of 2018, the $355 million bank was purchased by a group of banking executives and today operates seven branches throughout northern New Mexico and Colorado as InBank.
“We are proud to carry on the legacy of International Bank, which was founded by Mr. DiLisio on the notion of inclusivity. Today, the InBank name represents that same idea of inclusion and trusted relationships with our customers,” says Ed Francis, CEO of InBank and its Aurora, Colo.-based holding company InBankshares. “As we celebrate the 101st birthday of the bank this week, we intend to carry on the entrepreneurial spirit that the bank was founded on and live out our mission to positively impact the lives of our customers, communities and associates as a relationship-driven community bank.”
InBank’s executive management team, which combines over 150 years of expertise in community and regional banking, includes Edward Francis as CEO, Dennis Santistevan as chief financial officer/chief operating officer, David Brown as chief risk officer and Jeff Huckabee as chief information officer.
