Anthony Jon Hall – B.S., Accounting, 1973

Herald Journal
President and Chief Executive Officer Anthony Hall reaches his 40-year anniversary with Lewiston State Bank this September. When Hall started at Lewiston State Bank in 1973, he was one of 12 employees and only one of four men working at the bank. Starting as a teller with a wage of $500 per month, he did his job — plus anything else that needed to be done. He shoveled sidewalks, changed light bulbs and picked up the slack. Forty years later, he is still picking up the odd jobs, even while he serves as bank president. Hall quickly moved through the ranks at the bank and went from assistant cashier in 1978 to cashier in 1980, then from assistant vice president in 1982 to vice president in 1984. In 1993 he was made executive vice president and, finally, in 2006 he became the president and CEO of LSB. Just this last May, Hall was named chairman of Utah Bankers Association. Hall is a man for the people. His career has been built upon the relationships that he has created with customers and employees. When he started in banking, a person’s good character was all that was needed to get a loan at the small agricultural community bank. Policies and regulations have changed over the years at Lewiston State Bank, but Hall’s trust and value of a person’s character is still as strong as ever. Hall has been married to his wife, CeCille, for 42 years and has six children and 15 grandchildren. He serves as a stake president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Logan. He enjoys sports, gardening, watching Utah State University sports and being with his family. Lewiston State Bank was established in 1905. Lewiston State Bank was established in Lewiston, Utah in 1905. There are branches in Preston, Lewiston, North Logan and Logan.
