Our Credit Analysts get training and mentoring and access to our Senior Leadership Team.  Our CEO and President, Craig Scheef, is highly accessible and involved with our Credit Analysts and has monthly lunches with our Credit Analysts to provide career advice and time for Q&A sessions.  Our Senior Leadership Team as well as all our bankers (Market Presidents, Relationship Managers and Portfolio Managers) take our Credit Analysts out on calls with prospects and clients, which is a great introduction to interacting with business owners and key decision makers.  Finally, our Credit Analysts attend all loan committee meetings which is a great way to learn about commercial lending and the different types of deals the bank is working on.
