I was raised on the family livestock/grain operation in Northeast Nebraska and graduated from Scribner High School. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1982, I worked with various financial institutions in Iowa and Nebraska. My focus has generally revolved around Ag and small business lending, but I also have experience as a teller, consumer lender and home loan lender. My philosophy has always been that I am part of the team to help my customers attain their financial goals. Our philosophy at the Archer Credit Union revolves around Honesty, Integrity and Respect, and I look forward to ensuring that our team continues to meet these goals every day.

My wife Diane and I have been married since 1984 and have four children. We feel that living in a community is more than where your address is, so we enjoy being involved in a variety of activities in our church, school and community. This also allows us to better understand who our members are and how we can better meet their needs.

Agriculture has always been a part of my life. From growing up on a dairy and row crop operation, to working on a ranch in college, and then spending the first 5 years out of college as an agronomist, I have always been around the Ag industry. I’m married to my wife Sami Jo, and we have one child. The other thing that I really enjoy is sports. While I like all sports, my favorite is baseball, especially watching the Kansas City Royals.

With my background, education, and experience, I understand the challenges that the Ag industry faces. There are many factors that hurt production that you can’t control, but don’t let financing be one of them.
