John grew up in Peoria and spent the best four years of his life in Champaign attending the University of Illinois.  He’s a diehard Illini and Cubs fan, so he calls himself, “a glutton for punishment.”


John began his career as a mortgage loan officer with a savings and loan institution in Peoria right out of college.  After a few years he started his own mortgage company called Citizens’ Mortgage Services.  In 2006, after 10 years of success with Citizens’, he merged the company with Heritage Bank where he stayed until coming to INB in 2012.


As the most experienced – otherwise known as the oldest! – mortgage originator at INB, John was the first INB mortgage lender in the Peoria market.  He says, “It’s a joy working with a community lender that cares about my customers’ wants and needs.”


John’s taste in music runs from Eric Clapton to Toby Keith while his movie favorites include It’s a Wonderful Life

and The Wizard of Oz.  His favorite books are The Catcher in the Rye and The Golfer and the Millionaire.
