Ensuring All-Inclusive Quality

Ask anyone and theyíll tell you: Jim Friend is one of the nicest guys they know. Thatís because, as a Business Banker at Anchor, he genuinely cares about every single client and coworker with whom he interacts. Jim is responsible for managing business loans that vary in size, but in his mind, every customer should receive the same high level of commitment to finding the financial services that suit them best. With over 30 years of experience in business banking, he knows just how to achieve that.

Jimís last name serves his amiable personality outside of his work at Anchor too. From his co-chair role in fundraising for the Boy Scoutsí Friends of Scouting Program to his leadership in the Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club, Jim stays busy serving his local community. Though Jim gets the most satisfaction from assisting people in reaching their financial goals, he also loves getting outdoors on the weekend to fish for walleyes or pheasant hunting with his dog.

Dedicated to building long-lasting relationships as a basis for all of the work he does, Jim perfectly characterizes Anchorís approach to helping customers set goals and achieve success
