Don Bennett graduated from the University of Montana in 1979 and began his banking career as a financial analyst with what is now US Bank in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 1991, Don graduated with high honors from the Pacific Coast Banking School, where his project paper was titled “How to make efficient and effective use of personal computers”. This paper was inducted into the permanent library at the Pacific Coast Banking School and serves as the foundation of what is now AMPLoans. Don founded Freedom Bank in Columbia Falls, Montana in 2005 and has utilized the AMPLoans software to weather the difficulties that many community banks faced in the deep recession of 2008 -2011 and to help the Bank thrive today. Don is excited by the continued evolution of the product to meet the changing needs of community financial institutions.
