A big bank offers business banking experience and a wide range of resources. But if you're not one of its biggest accounts, you can't count on service. Small banks offer service, but lack business experience and resources. First Business is different.
Our bankers live and breathe business. We offer the resources of a mega-bank, but when you call us, you talk to a real person and when you visit us, we know your name.
Each Fall, First Business takes the pulse of local businesses through an annual economic survey. The survey focuses on the current year's actual and next year's predicted: sales revenue, total operating costs, capital expenditures, profitability, number of employee, changes in wages, and changes in pricing. Results are broken down by geography, and reported to the public in three local forums. Below are the panelists from the Northeast Wisconsin forum held on December 6, 2013. Read the Survey
