Benjamin Swanson, Business Banker
As a working father, with as many commitments outside of work as I do at the office, I value my time. In a society that constantly requires more of your time it can be difficult to balance a career or business with family life which is also more demanding every day. I know I am not the only one who feels this way. Add to that volunteering, community events and projects, or hobbies and the hours in the day become even more precious.
As a Business Banker with the State Bank of Cross Plains I come in contact with a variety of customers, business owners and other professionals who are dealing with the same issue. With a major in economics my natural tendency is to address this issue by creating efficiencies. For me that means budgeting time for scheduling my week, processing paperwork, and doing a little writing, not to mention mowing the lawn. I’ve also been able to pair this perspective of generating efficiencies with some of the tools provided by State Bank to get some time back for my customers in several different ways.
