“When Joe was hired, FSG’s loan portfolio had been shrinking at a rapid pace for nearly two years. Joe was charged with reversing that trend. He has provided strong leadership, support and motivation to our commercial lenders,” said CEO Kramer. “I am pleased to report that Joe and his bankers have achieved a net increase in loans for the last two months. They have also built a strong pipeline to continue that trend. Most importantly, he has done this with no compromise to our credit standards.”
