What’s new at your company this year? “We added experienced and consultative relationship managers to our Commercial Banking and Investment Real Estate departments as we continue to increase our focus and emphasis on growing these two areas. We rolled out our new Remote Deposit Capture service, which allows business owners to make deposits at their place of business without coming to the bank. We opened brand new offices in Franklin and Greenfield and are now up to 78 Wisconsin locations plus one in Woodbury, Minn.”

What was the best project you’ve been involved with? “While most have been a true pleasure to work on, financing my very first commercial office building construction project many years ago was very rewarding as I was able to help numerous businesses who moved into the new building, along with learning the basics of commercial construction lending.”

What was the most interesting moment of your career? “Getting a two hour tour on a tractor of a very large apple orchard. The owner kept stopping and giving me different types of apples to sample. By the time we were done, I was hoping I’d never see another apple for a long time.”
