Baker Boyer Announces Promotion of Mario Delgadillo to New Role as Director of Banking Division Strategy
Rapid changes in banking technology have led to the creation of a new position at Baker Boyer Bank. Mario Delgadillo has been promoted as the company’s first Director of Banking Division Strategy.
In his new role, Delgadillo will work with Executive Vice President, Chief Banking Officer Joshua Allington, assisting with operations of the Banking Division’s seven departments and leading execution of short- and long-term strategies within each one.
“In order to provide the level of banking and advising services to our clients as needed, in a place and time of their choosing, it was apparent that we needed to enhance our technology and workflow solutions across the entire division,” Allington said.
“Dedicating a resource to manage this ongoing transformative process was paramount to our success.” Delgadillo previously served as Baker Boyer’s Regional Business Banking Manager. He has been in the new position since Feb. 15.
Delgadillo joined Baker Boyer as a Business Advisor in 2016. In 2019 he was promoted to Regional Business Banking Manager, leading the team that oversees commercial loan portfolios, creates strategic plans for businesses and manages projects to help clients meet their financial goals. “Mario’s ability to strategize complex scenarios, effectively communicate with employees and clients, and execute on projects made him the right fit for the job,” Allington said. “His leadership skills obtained from serving in the Marine Corps, and as the Baker Boyer Regional Business Banking Manager, made him a strong fit for moving the Banking Division strategically into the future.”
Prior to his time at the bank, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps, playing key roles in humanitarian operations across East Asia, spent nine years as a security manager for the Department of Homeland Security and worked for security and consulting firm Gavin de Becker and Associates. He earned his Bachelor of Science in business administration from California Baptist University. He completed the Washington Bankers Association’s Commercial Lending Development Program and Colorado’s Graduate School of Banking. He is past president of the Community Council and current board member and a board member for Better Together.
While the focus of the work will be ever-changing with new projects, Delgadillo said the heartbeat of the job is focused on how Baker Boyer can evolve banking to better serve clients and the community. Some of this comes through new technology, the delivery of products and services, and the overall enhancement of the client experience.
