Sunflower Bank has opened a commercial loan production office at 520 Zang Street in Broomfield led by Market President Elaine Shannon, a long-time Broomfield resident. A growing bank with approximately $4 billion in assets as of June 30, 2018, Sunflower Bank is one of the top five largest banks headquartered in Colorado.

“We’re thrilled to have opened a Sunflower Bank location in Broomfield, because until now Broomfield has been underserved from a Community Bank perspective.
