Client Testimonials

"First Business keeps our investments healthy and growing."
"Three years ago, we were looking for a financial institution to help us manage our investments and day-to-day banking. We found the ideal partner in First Business Bank. They listened to us and understood the services we provide our members. Working with us, their trust and investment group has created several customized portfolios that have performed above the established market benchmarks. Plus, since the bank is locally owned, we have easy access to their team of talented business specialists. Thanks to First Business, our resources and assets continue to grow."

Steve Brenton, President & CEO, Wisconsin Hospital Association, Inc.


"Our future is stronger thanks to First Business"
"In 1990, our father was one of First Business Bank's first clients and we've continued that tradition. For 15 years, our family's company has relied on First Business for their creative solutions to our financing needs. We recently expanded into metal fabrication, and First Business was with us during the entire process. Their knowledgeable staff worked with us to understand our goals and help develop our business plan. We also like the business services that they offer, such as the courier service which we have used since we began banking with them. Creative solutions and valuable business services keep us with First Business Bank."

Jane Young, Owner, Vice President, Wiedenbeck Inc.


"For us, First Business Trust & Investments has been a terrific discovery!"
"As a professor, I have constant demands on my time. My wife is equally busy. Before FBTI, we were missing investment opportunities and were not managing our retirement savings effectively. FBTI has changed all that. They started by working with us to develop an asset allocation plan that meets our individual needs. With the plan in place, they took charge-and this is what distinguishes FBTI. They consolidated our scattered assets into a single managed account, made investments in support of our plan, and now they monitor and actively manage those investments daily to keep us on course. My wife and I are free to do what we do best, confident FBTI is minding the store. Their client service is first class, their performance impressive. Thank you FBTI."

Professor R. Stephen and Gail Humphreys


"We found the transition to First Business Bank to go very smoothly. They have been very responsive and helpful whenever we have questions or need assistance."
"Our treasury management rep was very helpful in guiding us through all of the paperwork required to get everything set up. During the initial set up of our online banking, they worked with us and showed us how to use the website. We find their online banking to be intuitive and easy to use. During the conversion of our two remote deposit machines they worked with us until they had us up and running." "Everyone is very helpful and we have been very satisfied with the process and the customer service we are getting from First Business Bank."

Michelle Dellemann, Systems, Inc.


"In our business, we value professionalism and personal service. First Business Bank delivers."
"We switched to First Business Bank four years ago after our existing bank relationship turned quite impersonal. We have a great relationship with First Business Bank. They treat us right. With First Business Bank our day-to-day banking needs are handled flawlessly and the courier service is a huge convenience. We like dealing with a local bank because we never have to wait for an out-of town loan approval. They also help us with the financing of our personal investments and our personal banking needs. It's a full-service relationship."

Dick Stangl, Weimer Bearing & Transmission, Inc.


"First Business Bank helps us build our business."
"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."

"First Business Bank reminds us of ourselves. They take an interest in their clients and their businesses, emphasize service and build relationships. Plus, they respond quickly to all of our requests. For example, we recently needed money for a large purchase. We called the bank and had approval the same day. It's that kind of consistent, excellent service that makes First Business Bank our only bank."

John Groskopf, Alpine Plywood Corp.


"At First Business Bank, we're more than an account number"
"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."

"We work with First Business Bank because they respect us and provide a high level of service we couldn't find at other banks. When I call or stop by, everyone knows me and can immediately answer questions about our accounts. I don't have to wait for a response from another office, and that saves me time. Plus, with their knowledgeable team focus on business, they act as trusted advisors and truly provide solutions to our needs."

John Miller, Engineering Specialists, Inc.


"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


"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."
