Craig Kouba, Head of FBFC Residential Lending,
Promoted to Senior Vice President

Oconomowoc (March 3, 2016) – First Bank Financial Centre (FBFC), a full-service, community bank that has served southeastern Wisconsin since 1859, is pleased to announce the promotion of Craig Kouba to Senior Vice President.

“Craig has been instrumental in the development of our residential lending team and product portfolio,” said Mark Mohr, FBFC President and CEO. “We’re proud of all he has accomplished, and look forward to continuing to grow this core competency under Craig’s leadership.”

An industry leader with over 20 years of experience, Kouba has led residential lending for FBFC for nearly seven years. In that time, FBFC’s lending team has grown to over 30 lenders, and the bank has added loan production offices in Green Bay, Appleton, Wausau, Madison and Menomonee Falls. Additionally, Kouba has recently added lenders in the Minneapolis and Chicago areas.

“I’m proud of the growth we’ve achieved since joining FBFC,” says Kouba. “We offer our customers the full breadth of lending products they’d expect from large regional and national banks, but are able to provide a level of service that is unique to us.”

Says Kouba, “Customers appreciate our approach and responsiveness, and our growth is a reflection of that.”
