Farra will also work out of the Excelsior Drive location.
McLendon is an experienced retail banker and a certified consultative sales professional.
“Kayla’s commitment to be a consultant with her clients make her a perfect match for the Settlers bank approach to business," says Burns.
“I was drawn to Settlers bank because of the genuine warmth and interest I felt from our first conversation,” claims McLendon.
Farra is an established real estate sales professional serving in the Madison market for the past four years. Farra holds her BA in sociology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
Paul states, “Lindi knows the real estate side of the business and brings with her an excitement to learn the loan origination side. She brings a new perspective and energy to the team.”
“As a realtor, I know the hard work it takes to get a deal done. Settlers bank has the same entrepreneurial spirit as a team that I had as a realtor. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?” says Farra.
