John Evans Jr. opened the Burley branch of his grandfather’s company D.L. Evans Bank in 1979, and he became CEO in 1986. When he started, it was the smallest bank in the state, and he managed to grow it to become one of the largest community banks located in and headquartered in Idaho.
Along with the rest of the executive management team and other members of the company’s family, Evans Jr. led the bank successfully into the 21st future century.
Evans Jr. and his family see their company as a community, one where local growth is the lifeblood of it. In March 2022, D. L. Evans Bank was recognized as the Financial Business of the Year by the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce for the outstanding social and economic contributions the bank has demonstrated in the Idaho Falls community.
