Company History

Brode Consulting Services has been in business since 1998 and our mission statement has been our mantra from day one.....to provide exceptional consulting services and to be your partner in this ever changing banking environment. Our bank clients are business partners as well as friends....it's always been that way.

 

We understand the community bank's needs and challenges because all of our consultants have "been there / done that"! We are community bankers at heart and always will be. And although banking can be frustrating, we truly love it!

 

I started in banking in 1973 in a small community bank in Geauga County, Ohio. After 16 years behind the desk in the lending area, decided to try the consulting hat on. I then worked for a consulting firm for ten years and expanded my experience to strategic planning, more lending, compliance, marketing, and more. And in 1998, struck out on my own to continue consulting services for community banks....and what a fantastic ride that has been. I have had the honor of working for community banks and community bank associations across the country.

 

And here we are....MANY years later with the same mantra....to bring you the best consulting assistance possible and to exceed your expectations every day. Thanks for the honor and opportunity to work with you.
