Regional Marketing and Sale Support Director
Wisconsin Bank & Trust
Madison, Wisconsin, January 17, 2018 — Wisconsin Bank & Trust announced today the promotion of Amber Lamers (formerly Tenpas) to the role of Market President for the Sheboygan region. In this capacity, Lamers will oversee all commercial lending and other bank services to businesses throughout seven branches in Sheboygan.
Prior to beginning her new role on January 15, Lamers served as Wisconsin Bank & Trust’s statewide head of Retail Banking. In that role, she oversaw the Banking Center Managers at all 17 locations throughout Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Sheboygan, Monroe and southwest areas of Wisconsin.
Lamers first joined Wisconsin Bank & Trust in 2013 as a Commercial Banker based in Sheboygan. At that time, she was the only female commercial banker at any bank in the market. In recognition of that distinction, Verve Magazine profiled her in a “Women in Finance” feature.
“Whether it’s commercial or retail, there are few people more qualified to lead a community banking effort than Amber Lamers,” said Curtis Chrystal, president and CEO of Wisconsin Bank & Trust. “Having guided retail growth statewide, including the successful integration with Community Bank & Trust in Sheboygan, Amber is now returning to her ‘home base’—both geographically and in her return to business banking.”
Chrystal said, “Amber embodies excellence, creativity and initiative in her service to individual bank customers and to her colleagues—and has done so throughout her entire career, from early career roles as a branch manager with Associated Bank, and as a business banking officer with US bank. Wisconsin Bank & Trust is fortunate to have her talents at work on behalf of our clients.”
For many years, Lamers has been active contributor in the Sheboygan community:
· She currently serves as Board Chair of Girl Scouts of Manitou Council. In this role, she oversees strategic direction for Girl Scouts in seven counties as well as a $1.5 million annual operating budget and assets of $20,000,000 in real estate and investments.
· In addition, Lamers serves as President of the local chapter of Women in Management and Membership Chair of the statewide organization’s executive board.
Lamers is based from Wisconsin Bank & Trust’s Sheboygan Falls Banking Center located at 1160 Fond Du Lac Avenue, Sheboygan Falls, WI 53085. She can be reached at 920.453.7144 or [email protected]
