This week we caught up with Danny Mangum, V.P., Loan Officer over here at Mountain West. Danny’s been with us for the last six years, and has been involved with loan origination that whole time.

Q: What are three words to describe what you do for Mountain West?

Danny: Loans, Loans & Comedy

Q: What’s your favorite restaurant?

Danny: Settebello

Q: What has been your favorite project/event at Mountain West? 

Danny: Casper’s Ice Cream (Fat Boy), it has been so cool to see a rural manufacturer grow to a point where we are now working on their 3rd and 4th loans. The amazing thing about Casper’s is that their success has in part lead to the success of Richmond, Utah and parts of Southern Idaho as they employ the locals and buy goods from local farmers to support their ice cream production.

Q: If you were to write a self-help book, what would the title be? 

Danny: Just Wing It a self – help guide to parenting and life.

Q: What would you like to be famous for? 

Danny: There is still a part of me that thinks that one day a Major league Baseball scout is going to randomly be walking by the rec softball fields and will see my talent and give me a shot at The Bigs.

Q: What was the last movie that you saw? 

Danny: Suicide Squad

Q: Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

Danny: I read celebrity gossip magazines when I travel.
