What’s new at your company this year? "We are rolling out our new image campaign of “Banking Simplified”, leveraging our high level of personal touch and quick decision making. It represents the traditional Community Banking that customers really appreciate. Also, our SBA volume is currently leading the state in overall production for the first time."
What was the best investment/client/project you’ve been involved with? "It’s difficult to single out just one, but the overall satisfaction of successfully helping companies through the M&A process is very rewarding. We have had several customers transition ownership and are now enjoying the benefits of their hard work."
What was the funniest or most interesting moment of your career? "Probably a toss-up between meeting President Clinton and Richard Branson. They have a lot in common."
