Santarosa brings 17 years of banking experience to the board, joining fellow DCI customers and noted bankers Kim Capeloto (Bank of Clark County, Vancouver, Wash.), Lloyd Davidson (First Bank Kansas, Salina, Kan.), John Davis (Colorado Capital Bank, Castle Rock, Colo.), R.A.

"I am honored to serve on the DCI Board of Directors and to participate in this unique structure and philosophy. Their leadership is active in industry trends, but more importantly, the company proactively involves customers to create meaningful, responsive technology driven by real bank needs," said Santarosa.
