COOK OF THE WEEK - DAVID BOSWELL

David Boswell’s first words on his questionnaire were “I do not ‘Cook’!” But he does enjoy producing the food for the family members that he relies on to feed him. David enjoys producing beef and produce from the garden. “Nothing is better than a grilled hamburger dressed with fresh lettuce, onion and tomato from the garden,” he said. David is the Regional President at Bank Iowa. He has been at Bank Iowa for 22 years. I asked David what he liked best about working at Bank Iowa. His reply was “the solid, dedicated staff, the customers (I learn a lot from customers), and the variety of businesses.” He went on to say “that the Humboldt Community is well positioned for growth and stability. Humboldt County is a strong agricultural community with a diverse industrial base that provides many opportunities. Bank Iowa is proud to serve and support this growing community.” David and his wife, Jennifer, were married July 9, 1988.
