Linette graduated summa cum laude with dual majors in finance & marketing, plus an MBA – all while working full time. During her years in the banking industry, the majority of it in the commercial banking area, she has gained commercial lending experience in a wide range of industries, including, but not limited to, offices, hotels, elder care facilities and churches.
I chose TheBANK because commercial banking provides me with the opportunity to work with a diverse range of people in a diverse range of businesses. I have the opportunity to use both analytical and interpersonal skills in dealing with clients.
My fellow employees’ teamwork and commitment to serving the customer, as well as the tenure of much of the staff, says something about the bank. While local decision-making is appealing, TheBANK is also known to be supportive and involved in its communities. Interestingly enough, TheBANK was the institution that I had the most difficult time competing with at my previous employers.
After nearly 38 years in the banking industry, I have gained knowledge about banking and the STL/ME communities that I believe can be useful to my clients. It is very satisfying when a client makes the decision to work with me and TheBANK on their commercial banking needs and I enjoy watching my clients’ businesses grow and succeed.
I always take the extra step to meet customers at their place of business whenever possible, sometimes just to deliver documents that need their signature. I always want to have a positive interaction with those I encounter.
