Four mortgage professionals at Associated Bank were recently recognized byMpls.St.Paul Magazine and Twin Cities Business for exceeding customers' expectations, as each received the 2011 Super Mortgage Professional™ award.

Associated Bank's Super Mortgage Professionals include Randy Hoeschen, Jason Stoll, Mark Tripp and Bob Wild. Fewer than four percent of all licensed mortgage professionals in Minnesota receive this award.

"We are very proud to have such an elite group of mortgage professionals at Associated", said David Bauer, Associated Bank mortgage sales director. "We continually strive to deliver outstanding service to our customers and these five colleagues, in particular, have a proven track record of exceeding customer expectations."
