In recognition of outstanding performance, increased responsibilities, and significant contributions to the success of the company, Ixonia Bank is pleased to announce the following employees’ promotions.
Brandon Parker – to assistant vice president, Oconomowoc area retail manager. Parker joined Ixonia Bank in June 2018. Almost immediately, he served as a resource for many branch employees for basic account questions as well as more complex banking scenarios. Parker has a strong passion for customer service, and with his confident leadership, we know he’ll continue to succeed in helping grow the Oconomowoc market.
Tari Hanson – to assistant vice president, loan administration officer. Hanson began at Ixonia Bank in November 2017 when the needs of the Bank’s commercial loans department were great. Since then, she has continued to improve the processes and procedures of the department, and has taken on much of the responsibility in training new employees. Additionally, in 2020 Hanson took over the manager role overseeing the commercial loan processors. We have no doubt Hanson will continue to make a positive impact on the overall success of the Commercial Lending team.
Allison Christenson – to officer. Now promoted to officer status, Christenson first started with the Bank in a customer service role in September 2013. In January 2014, she transitioned into the Bank’s Human Resources department, and her responsibilities continued to grow. Always striving to help employees with any questions related to payroll and benefits offered by the Bank, Christenson further grew in her knowledge of human resources by completing the SHRM-CP exam in early 2020.
Holly Kuerschner – to officer. Kuerschner joined Ixonia Bank in April of 2018 as a loan servicing assistant and performed exceptionally well in that role. Before long, she was promoted to consumer loan operations assistant manager. Kuerschner has proved herself to be very driven and someone who cares deeply about her work and her contributions to the Bank. She has consistently demonstrated what it takes to earn Bank Officer status.
“We have built a high performing team around recruiting, retaining, and recognizing individuals for their leadership and contributions. All the employees promoted exemplify our company's core values and all of them possess the exemplary attributes that will provide strong leadership for Ixonia Bank for years to come,” states Dan Westrope, chairman & CEO of Ixonia Bank.
