Russ Anderson

A seasoned community banker committed to a purist approach to financial planning Russ offers a unique skill set to clients desiring to purchase or lease commercial, residential or investment real estate. He actively seeks out and enjoys collaborating with like-minded principle based individuals and business owners and appreciates the art of creating jobs in the marketplace through well planned and managed commercial endeavors. With a wealth of knowledge in the self-directed retirement plan industry, Russ also enjoys showing individuals how to take control of their own retirement strategies through self-direction, including education on how to own real estate in their retirement plans.
Russ graduated from Brigham Young University in 1981 with a bachelor’s degree emphasizing financial planning and counseling and began a career in community banking where he gained valuable experience in all aspects of community bank operations including the financing of commercial and residential real estate. He served in several senior management positions in various successful banks including as the founding Chief Financial Officer of Valley Community Bank in Duvall, Washington where he was instrumental in capitalizing the bank and profitably growing the multi-branch enterprise. Russ was ultimately appointed as the President and CEO of the bank. Following the successful negotiation and sale of the bank in 2001 he relocated to Utah and served as the manager of the Zions Bank Branch in Cedar City. In 2003 Russ became the founding President of International Bank and Trust, a nondepository trust company chartered in New Hampshire which provided custodial services to self-directed retirement account holders and their administrators. In 2009 he left the banking industry to devote his time and efforts to his own business as a strategic consultant to small businesses and individuals.
Russ and his wife Melissa were married in 1976 and are the parents of four children and a glorious wealth of grandchildren. They made Cedar City their home in 2001 and currently reside on acreage west of town with their German shorthaired pointer, several outside cats, chickens, rabbits and other varied forms of life.
