Keane and Lorenz were previously directors on the First Business Bank-Milwaukee board, which dissolved June 1 when the parent company, Madison-based First Business Financial Services Inc., consolidated the charters of its three banks into one.

Keane and Lorenz, who also serve on First Business Bank’s Milwaukee region advisory board, will bring a Milwaukee perspective to this new First Business Bank board, which was formed after the consolidation.
