Dave joined First American State Bank’s team in March 2008. Since entering Colorado’s banking industry in early 1991 he has had experience in extending a variety of credit products, including construction loan origination, mortgage lending, and commercial and investment transactions. His exposure to large credit, and portfolio management, and complex cash flow generation analysis have led him to his leadership position as Chief Lending Officer, managing the Bank’s lenders and loan portfolio in concert with Board and Bank goals and directives. He directs lenders and is responsible for the oversight of overall credit quality, cash flow consistency, and presentation analysis as head of Loan Committee. He works with other senior management to manage credit products offered, targeted returns, and growth and profitability goals for the Bank.
Dave has served as an Executive Member of Families First Colorado for the past 10 years, a non-profit organization focused on child and family health and welfare and dedicated to breaking the cycle of abuse with support services and education. He earned his Business Finance and Mathematics minor from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire, and is also a graduate of the Pacific Coast Banking School from the University of Washington in Seattle.
