I love our simple, but powerful mission; building communities. What we do is more than just financing projects. Our people make a real contribution to the places we live, work, learn and play. They are committed professionals and leaders in public finance with an outstanding reputation in the regions we serve. I'm proud and excited to lead this organization into its next chapter.
