“We’re thrilled to have opened a Sunflower Bank location in Broomfield, because until now Broomfield has been underserved from a community bank perspective. With our deep local knowledge and the ability to autonomously manage client relationships, Sunflower Bank brings differentiated financial solutions to this community,” Shannon said in a prepared statement.

For the past several months, Shannon has been supporting the commercial banking needs of Broomfield from the bank’s Boulder branch. Sunflower Bank plans to open a full-service retail branch in Broomfield in 2019 that will offer commercial and personal banking services.

Shannon began her career at United Bank of Broomfield almost 30 years ago. She joined Sunflower Bank as a commercial relationship manager four years ago to help open its Boulder office. Shannon is an active member of the Broomfield community and serves on the Broomfield Community Foundation Board of Directors.
