Danny Mangum: Loan Officer, Father, Gossip Magazine Guru

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.

Danny: Suicide Squad

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