Cassidy comes back to Monticello with CSB

Brian Cassidy

     After three years of working for Citizens State Bank in their New Vienna branch, Brian Cassidy has moved into the bank’s Monticello branch.

     Cassidy, of Dyersville, has expertise in lending, insurance, and loan review/quality control. He and a team of other CSB employees oversaw the bank’s successful participation in the small business PPP program (Paycheck Protection Program).

     “There was a large need here,” Cassidy said of helping keep small businesses operating. “We needed to get funds in the hands of small businesses now.”

     Cassidy said the bank functions to help move the economy along.

     “That’s how our country works,” he added.

     Cassidy is a 1998 graduate of Monticello High School. He has 10 years of banking and insurance experience.

     With CSB, he will continue his lending responsibilities while expanding his role with oversight responsibilities in the loan review/quality control division of the bank.

     “We are excited for this move and look forward to the opportunity this presents for Brian and the bank,” stated CSB President Audrey Savage. “His professionalism and years of experience are a welcomed asset to Monticello.”

     Of relocating to Monticello, Cassidy said this was just the opportunity to assist CSB in Monticello with the leadership team rather than working remotely.

     “I love problem solving,” he said, “and the analytic aspect of assisting our clients to improve their financial quality of their business.”

     Cassidy sees customers from a wide area around Monticello, including Winthrop, New Vienna, and Manchester.

     “CSB’s philosophy is customer-based,” he said. “We’re focused on customer relations and serving the specific needs of every client individually.”

     Cassidy’s background is actually in education and coaching. He explained his career in banking and insurance just evolved over time organically.

     He enjoys working for CSB because the bank maintains branches in smaller communities rather than larger cities.

     “It goes back to our core values,” he said. “We’re a small-town bank that supports small-town businesses. That’s very important.”

     “Please join us in welcoming Brian to our Monticello team,” Savage said. “He, along with all of our Monticello staff, are ready to serve all of your banking needs.”
