Ross Rademacher – VP/ Commercial Loan Officer
“When I started in banking, someone told me I was like the, “Non-banker, banker”. It’s true; I think more like a business owner and less like a banker. Most of my career has been spent starting, owning and operating my own companies. I approach finance from the business owner’s perspective and apply sound financing principles that will help my clients.”
