Right out of college, Kyle began his career with TheBANK of Edwardsville’s Granite City office as a part time teller. He looked for opportunities to get more involved on the customer service side and soon took a position as a personal banker. He quickly realized that assisting clients with loan needs was the most rewarding part of his role at that time. When an opportunity became available in the commercial banking division, he accepted. He has continued his financial training by earning a Certificate in Commercial Lending, Illinois Bankers Association and a Lending Certificate, Center for Financial Training. He is a 2014 graduate of the IBA’s Future Leaders Alliance Institute and a 2011 graduate of the Leadership Program at TheBANK of Edwardsville.
I wanted to jump into a career with a local business that would allow me to work in or near the communities that have provided so much to me. I knew that working for the most well-known community bank in the area would provide many benefits. I always remembered TheBANK as a place where employees treated their customers with respect.
TheBANK greatly impacts the local communities it serves. They have been a major contributor to many successes in those communities.
I measure personal success daily by one’s ability to make a difference in another’s life. I see my clients’ success as reaching a common goal that results in value added to that client. Empathizing with clients and offering my honest opinion, whether it is aligned with the client’s opinion or deemed as constructive criticism, is a value-added characteristic that I strive for. Sharing mutual trust with my client is most rewarding.
