Working in the banking industry for more than 23 years and living in the Fox Valley area my entire life, I hope to introduce Baylake Bank with their great reputation to both individuals and companies in our community,” Schabo said. “Baylake is large enough to provide a full array of product and service solutions, from a community bank where the decisions are made locally and in a very timely manner.”
