Associate Trust Officer & Wealth Advisor
Prior to joining our team in early 2021 as Associate Trust Officer and Wealth Advisor, Chris served as Assistant Vice President & Branch Manager at UMB Bank in Manhattan. The financial services sector is a natural fit for Chris, whose father was a career banker back home in southeast Kansas.
“Success, to me, is measured in the relationships I make. This philosophy has served me well personally and professionally.”
Chris earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Marketing from Kansas State University. During college, Chris started working as a customer service representative at the locally-grown athletic apparel company GTM Sportswear (now owned by HanesBrands Inc.), and rose to National Account Manager before transitioning to banking.
Chris and his wife, Dana, who works at the Kansas State University Foundation, were married in 2005. They keep busy with their two soon-to-be teenagers and two Great Danes, and cheer on the K-State Wildcats whenever there is an opportunity. Chris also enjoys hunting and woodworking in his free time.
