Shumway retiring from Bank of Utah

 Executive Vice President (EVP) and Senior Wealth Management and Foreign Exchange Director Roger Shumway, a resident of Kaysville, is retiring after almost 20 years with Bank of Utah. Shumway also served previously as Chief Credit Officer for the bank.

 Shumway joined Bank of Utah in 2001, after previously working for 22 years as a loan installment clerk for Zions Bank and then as a credit officer and credit trainer for First Security Bank/Wells Fargo.

He was appointed by Utah Gov. Gary Herbert to serve a four-year term as director of the Utah State Board of Bank Advisors. He is the Utah state representative on the Fifty State Banker Board of Friends of Traditional Banking, a SuperPAC for the banking industry. Shumway is also a member of the national Risk Management Association (RMA) National Community Bank Council, and is currently co-chairman of the Commercial Real Estate Steering Committee of the American Banker Association. He also volunteered for the Boy Scouts of America.

Shumway is a graduate of the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. He and his wife, Janet, reside in Kaysville, and enjoy spending time with their children and many grandchildren.


“Roger is a consummate professional and a banking industry stalwart whose meticulous work and leadership in credit management, wealth management and foreign exchange has greatly contributed to the bank’s growth and prosperity,” said Bank of Utah President and CEO Douglas L. DeFries. “We will miss you, Roger, and are greatly indebted to you. Congratulations on an outstanding career and may you and Janet have a joyful retirement.”
