The best compliment I received from a client was that he considered me a valued part of his team and wanted to consult with me on major decisions—even those not directly related to banking. With over 35 years of banking and business experience, I have the knowledge and skills to solve problems for my customers in the following areas and more: credit analysis, commercial lending, cash management, and personnel management. My original attraction to banking remains true to this day. By doing my job right, both Village Bank and my customer win, and we can develop a relationship which can last and grow for years. I am convinced that community banking is the best way to achieve this outcome. Let’s get busy solving your problems.
