Mountain West Bank
Dan Price, Community Banking President

A friend is considering moving to the Treasure Valley. What’s your elevator pitch on why they should?

I enjoy the Treasure Valley for its 4 distinct seasons; variety of activities from outdoor recreation to arts and culture; friendly people; vibrant downtown; relatively easy accessibility and overall quality of life

What’s your favorite piece of public art and where in the world is it?

Any national/international piece created by Dale Chihuly or Romero Britto. Downtown Boise also has some fun and unique public art.

What’s your go-to book to give a friend?

No favorite “go-to” book recommendations. How about a favorite go-to weekly magazine? The Week magazine re-caps the prior week’s major events using a balanced approach to journalism. The reader is able to read various points of view on current topics to help form their own opinion on the topic. It’s refreshing to be able to read about both sides of an issue and then make up your own mind.

If you could change one thing about the Treasure Valley, what would it be and why?

Transportation is becoming a bigger and bigger issue. We really need a long-term comprehensive transportation plan across the valley. The longer we wait, the more costly it will be and the more congestion and problems we will face.

What is the one thing about the Treasure Valley you would never change?

The outdoors and quick accessibility to a variety of outdoor recreation.

One of our area’s treasures is the outdoors. What’s your favorite thing to do here?

Walking around downtown Boise, enjoying a glass of wine and a good meal in downtown. I really enjoy the vibrancy of downtown Boise

What makes the Treasure Valley a treasure?

There are a number of things that create the “treasure” in Treasure Valley: Its people, climate, recreational opportunities, shopping, dining, arts, culture. The river running through the valley is also something to treasure.

What “hidden gems” have you discovered living here?

Some of the rural areas that still exist throughout the valley and wine country south of Caldwell. Where else can you have a big city but still see horses, chickens and cows minutes from downtown?

What energizes your business team to work together to support the community?

We work for a community bank where supporting the communities we serve is simply part of our DNA. Each member of our team has a built-in desire to give back to our community in order to make sure it is a great place to live and raise our families.

What lasting impression do you hope Together Treasure Valley will have?

It takes everyone to make a community a great place to live. At the end of the day, it is important that we all have left this place a little bit better than when we got here.

Name one local business leader you most admire, and tell us why?

It is very difficult to choose just one. There are many local business leaders that go about their job positively impacting our community without fanfare and little recognition. Thank you to those silent leaders and influencers

What positive feedback has your company received about Together Treasure Valley?

Our company is new to Together Treasure Valley. It has been very rewarding to educate various members of our community on the projects that we are doing as a small group of business leaders.
