The Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA) recently featured a video, The Value of Banking, at their WBA Bank Executives Conference in Milwaukee.

The video features interviews with three real Wisconsin bank customers describing the value and impact the bank brought to their unique situation: a homeowner talking about finally building her dream home, a manufacturer explaining how his bank has helped his business achieve long-term growth, and a dairy farmer describing how his bank has helped keep the business in the family for generations.

“Our state’s economic well-being greatly depends on the banking industry,” said Corey Hoze, Director of Government Relations & Regulatory Affairs, Associated Banc-Corp. “Each customer has a different story and definition of success and Associated Bank prides ourselves on offering services and products to help them achieve that success.”
