Exhibit 99.1




AMERICAN FORK, UTAH (June 10, 2019) – People’s Utah Bancorp (NASDAQ: PUB) has announced the addition of Natalie Gochnour, M.S., to its Board of Directors. The election by People’s Utah Bancorp shareholders took place at the 2019 Annual Shareholders meeting. Gochnour has served on the Salt Lake County Advisory Board for Bank of American Fork since 2017.  Her three-year term on the People’s Utah Bancorp board begins immediately.

Gochnour is an associate dean in the David Eccles School of Business and the director of the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah.  She also serves as the chief economist for the Salt Lake Chamber.  Her election to the board brings additional economic and business expertise to People’s Utah Bancorp and its operating bank.

“With a broad background in business and economics, and with strong ties to the Utah community, we believe Natalie is a perfect fit for the People’s Utah Bancorp Board of Directors,” said Rick Beard, Chairman of the Board. “Her experience and expertise will be invaluable as we execute our plan for continued growth and maintaining the best possible service for our clients.”

Gochnour has a long history of public service and involvement in the community.  She advised Utah governors Norman H. Bangerter, Michael O. Leavitt, and Olene Walker and was the media spokesperson for the governor’s office during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.  She was a political appointee in the George W. Bush administration, serving in both the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Gochnour currently serves on several community non-profit boards, including Primary Children’s Hospital, World Trade Center Utah, Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation, and Envision Utah. She also serves on an advisory board for Dominion Energy and the Corporate Governing Board of O.C. Tanner. Gochnour is keenly interested in public policies that promote balance, civility, and prosperity, sharing her views in regular columns in both Utah Business magazine and the Deseret News, and also co-hosting Both Sides of the Aisle, a weekly public radio program on public affairs.
