Victor Allen is a native of Burlington, Wyoming, where his parents farmed. At a young age he grew up working in the dry edible bean business as well as working summers on the family farm in Burlington. After moving to North Dakota, then Minnesota, Victor graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelors of Agricultural Business Administration. He went to work for Eastman Kodak, selling animal nutrition supplements. Subsequent career moves included marketing information systems and multiple product and business management roles leading global business units at Eastman Chemical Company.
Victor obtained his Masters of Business Administration from Wake Forest University’s Executive MBA Program and went on to work in corporate finance at Eastman, including strategic and capital planning, mergers and acquisitions, and led the finance organization for Voridian, a $2.5 billion division of Eastman, before becoming corporate treasurer of the company. Later, Victor served as CFO for a development company seeking to convert algae to protein, oil, and dietary supplements. He also led his own management consulting practice before joining Wyoming Community Bank.
As a Wyoming native, Victor had desired to return to the state for many years. Victor has relocated from Kingsport, Tennessee to Riverton with his wife. They have two adult children. Their son works in seed research for Monsanto, and their daughter is a second-year veterinary student at Auburn University.
Victor is excited to be working with the folks at Wyoming Community Bank, and looks forward to working with customers on their agricultural and commercial financing needs.
