It has been sooo long since I have posted on this blog. The biggest reason for my absence is due to the fact that I left my small bank position and went back to (gasp!): Big Bank! Well the best big bank in the world entered my market and when a co-worker and I heard about it, we set out to join that bank. My interest level was very high because I know how technologically advanced they are in Treasury Management. Well it has been almost one year and I have not had a second of regret. My last assignment at a big bank was in a sales management position. I pretty much have learned my lesson that management is not where I want to be. I do think I am a good leader – I had a great team reporting to me but the worst part was not managing my team but rather managing up. I suspect that this might not be the case at every big bank but I am very gun shy about having to be in the middle of all that “spin” again. So I am loving life and living back in the trenches. I have my own little world that stays in balance as long as I get the job done. That leads me to this blog. Its genesis was to tout the benefits of being a client in a small bank. I am still a very firm believer that a small bank can be a very wonderful place for a small business to bank. Small business bankers are a great lot. And community banks make it their mission to take care of their business clients. But I can’t take sides anymore. The best bank for your business is the one that best meets your needs. And that can cover a whole lotta’ ground!
Now that I have determined that I can still get into WordPress, and if I can find the time, I might continue posting here.
