Serving the Unique Needs of Northeast WI Businesses

First Business Bank, a part of First Business Financial Services (NASDAQ:FBIZ), was the first bank in the Midwest to devote itself exclusively to serving businesses. We take an individual approach to your company's banking needs and pride ourselves on responsiveness. From our offices in Oshkosh, Appleton and Green Bay, we serve businesses and business owners in the Northeast region. We offer commercial loan products, as well as a full line of deposit, investment, and leasing products through our affiliates First Business Bank - Madison and First Business Trust & Investments, including remote deposit, treasury management products, retirement plans, investment management & trust services, specialty based lending, and equipment finance and leasing.

We pride ourselves on our ability to meet and anticipate client needs. All of our staff are very experienced and capable of providing solutions to you. Decisions are made by our local management team and Board of Directors who are absolutely committed to the Northeast business community. We are also proud of our individual and corporate contributions we've made and continue to make to support the local community.

Recognition

Alliance Development

"I know both my lender and the president on a personal level."

"First Business Bank makes decisions locally and quickly. I know both my lender and the president on a personal level. They truly understand my business, how it is unique, and what our current and future needs are. It brings me peace of mind to know that they are the ones making decisions on my loans and recommending custom financial solutions."

Andy Dumke, Partner, Alliance Development

Valley Express, LLC

"My First Business Bank lender is extremely responsive and respectful of my time."
"When our previous bank lost interest in us as a customer, we turned to First Business Bank. It's a decision we don't regret."

"My First Business Bank lender is extremely responsive and respectful of my time. He drives to our office to discuss our lending needs and helped us set up a remote deposit system. He realizes my priorities as a business owner. He makes things simple for me, so I can focus on the strategic and day-to-day elements of growing my business."

Ron Jankowski, President, Valley Express, LLC

Community Support

Individual Contributions
First Business and its 150 employees are involved in the community in many ways. A recent employee survey indicated First Business employees volunteer free time to 154 local organizations and sit on 76 local boards and committees. First Business employees are also involved in corporate community activities such as United Way's Day of Caring.

First Business was recently awarded a Wisconsin Corporate Citizenship Award by Corporate Report Magazine in recognition for its community support and employee relations.

Corporate Contributions
Directors and staff of the bank wholeheartedly support making contributions to local charitable organizations in our market area. Our employees are approached individually by acquaintances, friends, and organizations and the giving process is difficult. In 2004, First Business established the First Business Charitable Foundation, Inc. to provide a funding mechanism and appropriate record keeping for the charitable contributions of First Business.

Why First Business

Our mission is to provide premium service and the highest quality products that meet our clients' financial needs. Our clients tell us the First Business difference is personalized attention, fast turnaround on decisions, knowledgeable people, and access to top decision makers.

Personalized Attention

First Business doesn't plug your business into a formula. We take the time to learn what you do and how you do it. We use our understanding of your unique needs to craft a unique solution.

Fast Turnaround on Decisions

Business opportunities can develop suddenly. But the window of opportunity can close quickly, so you need a responsive financial partner to take advantage of these opportunities. At First Business, we make our decisions locally and quickly - so you get the answers you need when you need them.

Knowledgeable People

The best financial consultants understand more than their own business. They understand yours, too. First Business has consulted with hundreds of successful businesses and individuals. So we know how to help our clients succeed. Our people have strong business backgrounds and a deep appreciation for the entrepreneurial spirit. In addition, the members of our board of directors are always willing to share their experience and perspective with you.

Access to Top Decision Makers

Every financial services company says it values your business. But First Business demonstrates the importance of your relationship by giving you access to all of its resources and all of its people - including our presidents and CEOs. Our top people get to know you and your business in a way our competitors can't or won't. So even if your primary contact is out of the office, there's someone available who knows your business and can get things done.
