David Rouse to lead expansion of Ixonia Bank’s Mortgage Lending Program
Ixonia Bank, a full-service financial institution with assets approaching $560 million and seven locations, is expanding its footprint in the Metro Milwaukee area by opening a mortgage lending office in Brookfield this summer. Senior Vice President – Residential Lending David Rouse has been tasked with building and managing a successful lending team that will utilize cutting edge lending technology and combine with it the personal relationship that clients have come to expect when working with Ixonia Bank.
“This is a logical and strategic expansion for us,” states Dan Westrope, chairman and CEO of Ixonia Bank. “We expect this market to provide us with additional growth opportunities going forward and Dave is the ideal person to lead this effort.”
David Rouse adds, “I’m excited to lead the re-imagined Ixonia Bank mortgage lending division, not only in the communities we serve, but in all of southeast Wisconsin. ‘Helping You Succeed’ is not only our tagline, but something we’re committed to doing every day.”
The office will be in the Sendiks Towne Centre at 3815 N. Brookfield Road, Suite 103, in Brookfield. It will be devoted to lending activities and will include a space for client meetings and closings. The location will not accept customer deposits. Rouse can be reached at (414) 587-5870 to set up a meeting.
Rouse has more than 30 years of experience in the mortgage industry. He most recently served as single family housing group director at Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA).

Well-known and trusted in the Wisconsin financial market, he has served on the Governor’s Council of Financial Literacy since 2017 and received a lifetime achievement award from the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association in 2019.
