Earlier this year, he was named regional president of BMO’s wealth management division, overseeing a team of wealth management professionals located across Wisconsin, Minnesota and Colorado. Snyder was previously president of BMO Harris Equipment Finance for 11 years.

Education: Bachelor’s, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Fun fact: “I never planned to go into banking or finance. I was a Russian (and economics) major in university and thought I’d work in the foreign service. Banking was originally intended to be a brief stop after college to allow Russia to settle down. It’s a good reminder that we never know where we (or our kids) will end up in life!”

Favorite destinations: “I love being outdoors and spending time in the mountains. We typically spend time out west in the summer and get to Arizona when we can in the winters.”

Favorite Wisconsin restaurant: “A few favorites include Buckley’s (their Nashville chicken sandwich is amazing!), Morel, Cloud Red and Ardent.”

Career advice: “Be present, ask for more and be willing to step outside of your comfort zone in your professional career. Sometimes embracing change and taking a risk on something new ends up being the most rewarding and engaging thing any of us can do.”
