Russ McGee, of Iowa Trust and Savings Bank, Centerville, successfully completed the 2013 Iowa Bankers Association’s Commercial Lending School held Sept. 29–Oct. 4 in Cedar Rapids.
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; develop an understanding of the role of company’s management and how to analyze and evaluate that management; develop a thorough understanding and application of basic and advanced analytical techniques; and develop an understanding of relationship banking to meet and maintain multiple customer financial needs.
McGee is currently a vice president at Iowa Trust, starting his career there in 2008. His primary focus is real estate mortgage lending. Along with a degree in Business Management from Buena Vista University, McGee’s experience includes 14 years in the financial services Industry.
He and his wife, Marilee, have two boys, Max and Jack.
