Trenkamp Earns Certificate from Commercial Lending School
Evan Trenkamp, Loan Officer at Citizens First Bank, successfully completed the 2018 Iowa Bankers Association’s Commercial Lending School held last month in Ankeny, Iowa.
The school is an intense one-week program sponsored by the Iowa Bankers Association. The purpose of the IBA Commercial Lending School is to prepare commercial lenders who have not been exposed to formal commercial lending education or lenders who want to broaden their commercial lending knowledge to serve effectively and profitably as commercial loan officers.
This is accomplished by developing a better understanding of the economy and how it affects the lending decision; developing an understanding of how a business is structured and how it competes; developing an understanding of the role of company management and how to analyze and evaluate that management. Additionally, the students are instructed on the application of basic and advanced analytical techniques, and relationship banking to meet and maintain multiple customer financial needs.
Evan is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Platteville with a degree in Agriculture Business; additionally he holds a degree in Accounting from Upper Iowa University. In addition to the commercial lending school, Evan is a 2017 graduate of the Iowa School of Banking and has received the Iowa Bankers Association certifications in Ag and Consumer Credit. Evan has been an Officer with Citizens First Bank since 2014.
Senior Vice President - Senior Credit Officer, Keith Hook, stated, “Evan is a great asset to Citizens First Bank and his completion of the IBA Commercial lending School reinforces that. Evan will apply the knowledge obtained to improve upon the already great service he provides to his customers.”
