Career advice: “Always be willing to take calculated risk. Nothing significant can ever be achieved without the willingness to take some risk.”
Book recommendation: “‘David & Goliath’ by Malcolm Gladwell. This is a wonderful book that provides examples and reminds us that perceived disadvantages are not what they appear to be. A great reminder for all of us in life.”
Favorite restaurant: “Five O’Clock Steakhouse, the classic Milwaukee supper club experience. You can’t beat the Surf & Turf special – best in Wisconsin.”
Biggest recent success: “Old National Bank’s merger with Chicago-based First Midwest Bank earlier this year has been transformative. It brings our company directly into one of the largest U.S. Midwest markets and nearly doubles our asset size and banking center reach. Additionally, it has allowed our Milwaukee-based team to merge with the legacy Park Bank franchise, with its stellar reputation for client service and growth.”
