About the “Lending Tag Team”

Lending and finances have been Cari’s focus for over 30 years throughout the surrounding counties and continues to be her focus as part of the Agriculture & Business Services team at Cleveland State Bank. She currently serves on the Ag Advisory Committee for Fox Valley Technical College and is an active member of the Chilton FFA Alumni. Her involvement in the community, and the relationship she has with the people in the community, is a vital quality for which she continually strives. Cari resides in Calumet County with her husband Gerald and has four grown daughters.

Brad grew up with small community values that convey in his position as a consumer and mortgage lender. Growing up and working with his father at the family business in Cleveland provided him the opportunity to create a connection to the village and the people who reside there. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in finance, he decided to return to his roots and create a home in Cleveland with his wife, Anna. To further his lending knowledge, Brad is continuing his education with Wisconsin Banker’s Association.

“Lending Tag Team” focus

Although Cari’s expertise is distinctly developed in the agricultural lending field, she has experience working with businesses of all types—production agriculture as well as small business. She thrives to understand your specific operation and find the best solution to allow you to be successful and prosperous. The definitive goal is minimizing interest rate risk coupled with appropriate loan structuring to allow for positive cash flow and proper balance sheet growth. One of Cari’s many resources include her working knowledge of the USDA-FSA direct and guarantee loan program.

Brad will review your options so your personal finance needs match your business needs. He will walk you through the pre-qualification process and review your lending portfolio in order to obtain a long-term, fixed-rate loan, to diversify your risks as the market changes. There are many loan options available for your specific needs including bridge and construction loans.
