Mario Hernandez joins Bank of Idaho board of directors

Mario Hernandez
Mario Hernandez, owner and general manager of Teton Toyota and Teton Volkswagen in Idaho Falls, has been elected to the Bank of Idaho board of directors.

In a press release, board chairman and CEO Park Price said he expects the bank to benefit from Hernandez's expertise as the owner of a successful retail business, and from his involvement in the community.

Hernandez bought the Idaho Falls Toyota dealership in 2005 when it was located on East Anderson Street and supervised its move to Snake River Landing on Sunnyside Road in 2009. Construction of the Teton Volkswagen dealership next door will begin this spring.

A graduate of Pocatello High School and American College in Bryn Mawr, Pa., Hernandez and his wife, Glenda, are involved in many community organizations, including the Idaho Falls Arts Council, Idaho Falls Symphony, Snake River Animal Shelter, School Districts 91 and 93 and Holy Rosary School, Ducks Unlimited and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. They have three children, Crystal, Anthony and Connor; and two dogs, Buddy (Teton Toyota's longtime mascot) and Bindi.

Bank of Idaho has branches in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, St. Anthony, Ashton and Island Park.
