St. Louis Area the Ideal Location for INB
Community banks can make decisions more quickly than larger financial institutions and adapt efficiently to serving customer needs. And that’s exactly what the St. Louis region prefers, making it the ideal place for INB to do business.
“St. Louis historically is a community bank town,” says Joe Fendi, VP, Commercial Banking. “Community banks can deliver fast and effectively on what you promise.”
INB opened in Chesterfield, Missouri in December 2018 as a loan production office. The original lending team included Joe, Sean McKenna (SVP, Missouri Market President) and Zach Lammers (VP, Commercial Banking). Max Mitts (VP, Commercial Banking) joined in early 2020, and Anthony Johnson (VP, Commercial Banking - LIHTC) and Brian Hintz, (VP, Business Solutions) came on board in 2021. Justin Schultz came on board in early 2022 as a VP, Portfolio Manager, with Brenna Rockwell rounding out the team later that year as AVP, Commercial Loan Coordinator.
INB was initially attracted to St. Louis because of the potential for growth. Our team of seasoned lenders is able to build the kinds of relationships INB values, as well as make decisions quickly so our customers aren’t left waiting.
“Our relationships with businesses are built on how we can help them obtain access to money to help them grow and how we can help them make money,” Zach explains.
