What piece of advice would you give a prospect or customer when it comes to the success of their business?

Develop relationships with proven and trusted advisors.

What is a lesson you learned that has contributed to your own success?

Many years ago I sat on the other side of the table listening to professionals and sales people offer to lend their expertise and assistance. It was easy to determine who was genuine, thoughtful, and professional – it became obvious who was the opposite, too. People have choices and finding the right fit is very important.

What do you like about working at Five Star Bank?

I am proud of what our Bank does everyday. I have access to everyone on our team to help me ensure our value proposition for our customers is consistently met and upheld. I also respect our Directors and Senior Management which creates the loyalty and ongoing pleasure of working for Five Star Bank for the past 17 years. The real bonus is the robust pool of relationships that have been created along the way with clients and in many cases their circle of friends and family.
