David Schuelke, CEO of Brookfield-based Spring Bank, has been appointed to the Community Bankers Council of the American Bankers Association.
The council includes almost 100 bankers, all named to the group by the ABA chairman. Most of the Community Bankers Council members represent banks with $1 billion or less in assets.
Spring Bank had assets of $168 million and total deposits of $148 million in April. It has committed more than $300 million in business loans since 2009.
Community Bankers Council members meet twice each year to discuss industry trends, government relations and competitive priorities. Members help share banks’ concerns with the ABA and often testify on Capitol Hill.
“Since the bank’s opening in 2008, Spring Bank has focused on using its financial strength to support local business owners in the southeast Wisconsin community,” Schuelke said. “The bank’s belief in providing business owners the individual attention that each of them deserves and providing capital when they need it have been the key components of our success to date.”
