A Dynamic Team with Deep Community Roots

“Breaking ground in Keenesburg is a day we have been looking forward to for over two years,” says Krista Gibson, Keenesburg Market President. “The employees of the Keenesburg branch are thankful for the support and encouragement we have received from the community. We are excited about the future opportunities this facility will allow us to provide for our friends and neighbors in Southeast Weld county.”

The High Plains Bank Keenesburg team is rich with town and area connections, Gibson and Kristine Bell, business development, both operate multi-generational farm and ranches in the area with their husbands. Additionally, Isabel Granados, Branch Manager, Brooke Bostron, Loan Processor, and Lindsey Skinner, Loan Processor, are veteran bankers in the Keenesburg-Hudson community. Rounding out the group is Customer Service Representative, Heather Huck, a long-time local business person and Brighton High School alum.

Full Service Bank Committed to Community

The new building will be designed by DBSI and constructed by Buildings By Design, a full-range general contracting firm located in Brush, Colorado who also is building the new High Plains Bank Wiggins location, opening later this summer.

“At Buildings By Design we like to say we build buildings that matter, and nothing matters more to us than building an institution that will help support rural communities,” says Travis Lefever, Buildings By Design Managing Member and Business Development. “The High Plains Bank Family does just that. We appreciate the opportunity to again work with High Plains Bank on another facility that will be servicing rural Colorado communities for years to come.”

The new Keenesburg branch will feature approximately 3000 square feet with considerations to both the internal and external aesthetics.

Modern Banking Services

Significant investments over the past few years to provide High Plains Bank customers with the state-of-the-art online and mobile banking services. HPBGO, the bank's highly rated and easy to use mobile app, empowers customers with the latest debit card management services, and the ability to solve banking problems any time of day.

At High Plains Bank, you will always have the opportunity to talk with a real person when you have questions or concerns. We pride ourselves on our follow through and problem solving approach when customers need our help. Customers often tell us how much they appreciate how creative we can be with our compassionate problem solving.

Thriving Communities

At the end of the day, High Plains Bank's primary goal is to help people build thriving communities. We live in the communities where we do business. We raise our children in these communities. And, we plan to retire here, too. We want the places we live to be interesting, vibrant, and healthy.

"We are very happy to have added the Keenesburg community to the High Plains Bank family, an area where there is so much positive growth occurring,” says John Creighton, High Plains Bank CEO. “We are excited to break ground on our new building. Our Keenesburg location, in operation since October, has a dynamic team led by Krista Gibson, Isabel Granados, Ximena Galvez, Heather Huck, Brooke Bostron, Lindsey Skinner, and Kristine Bell, who bring strong individual and collective civic, business, and family connections."

The current Keenesburg branch, located at 165 North Market Street, Unit B (just west of the gas station), will remain open until the completion of the new location, anticipated to be open in late 2022/early 2023.
