Doug Langen, CFP®
Director of Trust and Chief Investment OfficerDownload Resume
Doug Langen (Certified Financial Planner) joins the Trust & Wealth Partners as Director of Trust and Chief Investment Officer as the fulfillment of his dream to help clients develop lifelong wealth strategies while living in a community of passionate citizens and inspirational natural beauty. “I feel I’ve found my perfect fit here in Jackson Hole,” Doug says.
Doug is joining the Trust & Wealth Partners Team to lead the development and growth of our client solutions team. He will focus on strong investment solutions and expanded strategies to more fully serve all our clients.
Doug and his wife, Laura have deep roots in Indianapolis where Doug built a thriving practice of customized trust management. Now that their daughter is grown up and moved away, they knew the time was right to follow their desire for life in a smaller, outdoor-focused community. Doug is looking forward to pursuing his passions of skiing, hiking, golfing and fishing in the spectacular landscape of Jackson Hole and surrounding regions — although he will have to transition from the mid-west style of fishing to our alpine fly-fishing pursuits for native cutthroats. He looks forward to the challenge!
Katherine A. Dakota
Vice President, Trust Operations ManagerDownload Resume
When Katherine Dakota started considering her next move, she hadn’t been thinking about leaving Texas. She had established roots and friendships in College Station, Texas, working in Trust Administration for a firm that she liked, with potential to grow. But her daughter had graduated from Texas A&M, married and moved away, and suddenly it seemed like time for a change.
“I wanted to get into a job with an emphasis in operations, and if I was going to consider changing jobs, why limit myself to Texas? On a whim, I decided to look at opportunities in the Rocky Mountain region.”
Katherine saw a posting for Trust & Wealth Partners in a professional publication and threw her hat into the ring. “It was my dream job, right in front of me at exactly the right time.”
“Driving north from Rockdale, it was amazing how quickly the scenery changed – it was breathtaking. I got into Jackson Hole and took my first look around and said, “I sure can pick ‘em!”
With a little guidance from Trust & Wealth Partners, Katherine quickly found a home and has been focusing on her new position and her adopted community.
“This job is fantastic, and my coworkers are great professionals and wonderful people,” Katherine says. “I am impressed with the client and community focus at Trust & Wealth Partners and throughout the Bank.”
Katherine enjoys kayaking, biking, and hiking with her dog, and intends to take up cross-country skiing this winter. Some of her other interests include art, music, animals and community events. “Jackson Hole seems to be just about everything I’ve always been looking for. I feel that I’ve finally come home.”
“The Bank of Jackson Hole is a perfect size for our region and a perfect fit for me. I appreciate the family-owned, person-oriented culture here.”

When Bulgaria native Tsvetelina Bush traveled to the US as part of an exchange program in 2016, she never imagined she would fall in love. First with the Tetons that surrounded her in her summer job at Jackson Lake Lodge, and then with a fellow employee, Floridian Steven Bush. By the summer of 2017 they were married and traveling the world, sharing a passion for experiencing different cultures. But ever since that first summer, they both knew that they wanted to make Jackson Hole their home, and Tsvetelina is thrilled that her dream has come true.
Prior to her introduction to joining the Bank, Tsvetelina received her Master’s of Law degree from Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, and gained experience working in one of Bulgaria’s largest law firms. “I have found that dedication and passion in studying and work pay off as success, great results and satisfaction,” she says.
Tsvetelina says she is enjoying her role helping customers find solutions to complex questions and working with the expert staff in Trust & Wealth Partners. “Joining the Bank of Jackson Hole was a huge step for me and I am excited about the opportunities it gives me to grow.”
When not at work with fellow staff and customers, Tsvetelina enjoys spending as much time as possible in the outdoors with her husband and baby son. She is looking forward to a lifelong commitment to her adopted community and to building relationships with customers, neighbors and friends.
