Eugene W. Banks
Governor 2006-2007
Eugene W. Banks was born in 1944 in Wailuku, Maui, Territory of Hawaii.He spent his first year in Hawaii and then moved to the "mainland" due to his father's career in the military.His father retired to a small farm on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains in Olathe, Colorado.Life on a farm, with no running water and an outhouse, prepared Gene to make the most of whatever life had to offer after leaving Colorado.One week after graduating from high school, he began his trek to Brigham Young University at age 17.He left his life on the farm with a ten dollar bill from his parents and a one-way ticket on the "Trailways" bus.He worked his way through school & also served a two year mission for the LDS church to Hawaii.
He graduated from BYU (1968) with a B.S. degree in Banking and Finance and received an MBA (1972) in Finance with an emphasis in Securities from the University of Washington.His MBA degree was interrupted from 1969-71 when he served in the US Army.He received his commission as an officer after completion of OCS in Fort Belvoir, Va.
He started with Merrill Lynch in 1972 as a Financial Consultant in Phoenix, Arizona.He opened his first office for Merrill Lynch in Sun City, Arizona in 1978.As the Resident Manager of Merrill Lynch, he joined the Sun City Rotary Club.He was the President Elect for that club in 1981, but was transferred four months before his year began.His transfer took him to Honolulu, Hawaii where he was appointed as the Resident Vice-President over the Pacific Basin Complex including offices from Guam to Hilo.He was a member of the Honolulu Rotary Club from 1981 to 1990 and served in many capacities including Director.In 1990, he was transferred by Merrill Lynch to Salt Lake City to be the Managing Director for the firm.He then joined the Rotary Club of Salt Lake City in 1990 and has served as Treasurer, Vice President, 1st Vice President and President in 2002-2003.
Gene takes pleasure in Rotary service and his interaction with members worldwide which is evident by his 100% attendance since 1978.He enjoys "making up" meetings all over the world.Whether having an exchange student from Thailand in their home or tutoring with his wife at Franklin Elementary School, he has seen Rotary change the lives of those who serve more than those who receive.
Gene and his wife, Evelyn Hubbard of Soda Springs, Idaho, have eight children and nine grandchildren (three more expected this year).
Evelyn and Gene are Foundation Benefactors, Major Donors, and Paul Harris Fellows (along with his parents and their 8 children).
Gene enjoys collecting, karate, and travel.He and his wife currently are Church Education System Missionaries at the University of Utah institute over service projects.

"Many attendees bring their families and vacation before, during, and after the convention," says Eugene Banks, chairman of the host organization committee and Rotary district governor.
"We really didn't want to do it in 2007," says Banks. "We knew the city would be torn up and look ugly, and we didn't want it to be shown in construction mode, that's why we sought and won the 2011 convention."
Banks says he preferred to wait until 2011, but when asked by Rotary International on November 8, 2005, to make the switch with New Orleans, he agreed to do the convention-"and it was great! There wasn't anything we could do about the construction, so we focused on the positive. To that end, this convention featured seven different venues in which attendees could participate, each providing exposure to some of Utah's unique attractions.
Rotary International bylaws suggest only two venues, but Banks says this convention hosted seven because of the limitations caused by construction.
