Banking in Colorado: Trust and Trends featuring Jenifer Waller and Shawn Osthoff

Oct 3, 2023

Jenifer Waller was promoted to Chief Executive Officer and President of the Colorado Bankers Association in January 2022 after serving as President since 2020. Waller joined CBA in 1999 as the Senior Vice President responsible for state government relations and banking advocacy. In 2016, she was promoted to Chief Operating Officer accountable for the daily operations and management of the association. Prior to her days at CBA, Waller spent almost five years as a bank examiner for the Colorado Division of Banking.

Shawn Osthoff is President of the Bank of Colorado, one of the oldest banks in the state, with their first charter issued in Ft. Lupton in 1900. Bank of Colorado serves communities throughout the Eastern Plains, the Front Range, the Western Slope and the Four Corners Region. He is a Colorado native, and has been serving our communities since 1995. Attending both the University of Northern Colorado and Colorado State University, Mr. Osthoff is a proud Coloradan.

On this episode of A Seat at the Table with Debbie Brown, these two important cogs in the Colorado banking scene discuss the current lay of the land for banks in Colorado and beyond. They delve into how banks establish and maintain trust, why the recent bank failures in California and New York are unlikely to happen in Colorado, and what lies ahead for the industry this year and beyond. Banks are in many ways the barometer of the economy at large. This episode provides an inside look at the banking industry from two industry insiders.
