State Bank of Cross Plains has added three business bankers to its team, signaling its continued commitment to local business owners of all sizes. Since September, the bank has welcomed:
- Craig T. Schmidt as VP – business relationship manager
- Brady Mork as business relationship manager
- Mike Maynard as AVP – business relationship manager
With 29 years of banking experience, Craig Schmidt truly enjoys the “community” aspect of community banking. “The best part of my job is helping a small business owner succeed. I consider my customer relationships more like personal colleagues that I’m rooting for every day.”
Formerly a commercial underwriter at State Bank of Cross Plains, Mork returns to SBCP as a lender. His commitment to banking started young. “My grandpa was the president & CEO of a small credit union for nearly 50 years. I remember thinking as a kid that I liked the way he helped our friends and neighbors. He helped build our community. I wanted to do that too.”
Maynard completes the consensus on the importance of serving commercial enterprises of all sizes and industries. “Having worked for corporate banks for 25 of my 26 years in banking, I look forward to helping businesses in a way that community banks do better than anyone else. I’m excited to be a community banker…not just another banker in the community!”
While State Bank of Cross Plains has grown considerably with multiple mergers over the last 3–4 years, the bank remains committed to keeping its focus on local communities and the businesses that help our area stay strong and vibrant places to live and work.
