Can you please explain your current role?

I am currently responsible for business development of the bank’s loan and deposit portfolio.

Leading up to your current job, what other experience do you have related to the banking industry?

I am a May 1999 graduate of Iowa State University with a degree in Agricultural Business. I spent the next 18 months working as an agronomist and salesman in Southwest Iowa. In July 2000, I started my banking career as an ag lender in Lamoni, IA. I later moved to Des Moines, IA where I held positions as a commercial credit analyst and a commercial real estate lender, with the same financial institution. In April 2005, I accepted a position as Assistant Vice President of Commercial Lending with Two Rivers Bank & Trust where I helped establish and grow the de novo bank over $200 million in assets in less than 4 years. This early experience with the bank is one of the highlights of my banking career.

I am a 2001/02 graduate of the Iowa School of Banking. I am also 2012 recipient of the Two Rivers Bank & Trust Doug Grinde Determination Award.

Please highlight your community involvement.

I’m active with the Van Meter Elementary School district, having volunteered as a Destination Imagination coach and as a Watch DOGS dad (Dads of Great Students), a program brought to the school through the National Center for Fathering. I’m active in helping coach my kids’ soccer, t-ball and softball teams. I was the House Captain for Central Iowa’s Rebuilding Together of Greater Des Moines project day.

What do you enjoy most about your role at Two Rivers Bank & Trust?

I enjoy the people. You have to like who you work with to be around the same people for 12 years!

What does being a good neighbor mean to you?

Neighbors are the people you think about because you want to, not because you have to.
