Matt has been with SENB Bank since 1999 and has been assisting commercial banking customers since 2006. In addition to his experience in the commercial area, he has also worked in consumer lending and as a banking center manager. At the end of 2021, Matt became the chief credit officer for SENB Bank.
Matt enjoys getting to know his customers’ businesses and helping them reach their goals. He provides support and advice on borrowing, deposit, and cash management tools.
Matt’s advice for new customers is: “Lenders are always prepared with questions for new customers; however, new customers should also have ‘interview’ questions for their lender beyond the loan terms such as:
- Who at the bank will be part of my support team? (Think loans, deposits, treasury management and wealth management)
- Do you have experience assisting businesses in my industry?
- What other products/services would you suggest that would assist my company beyond the loan?”
