First Security is happy to share that Chris Corcoran has joined the bank as Senior Ag/Commercial Lender in Charles City.
Chris, who is originally from Fairbank, Iowa, received a Bachelor of Science degree from Iowa State University where he studied Agriculture Business and Agriculture Finance. He soon put that degree to use in community banking, an industry he’s been part of for nearly 25 years.
Throughout his career, Chris has focused on agricultural and commercial lending, managing bank investments, funding, and operations. He has demonstrated his commitment to expertise in the field through completing several training opportunities during his career. He has completed the Iowa Bankers Association’s Commercial Lending School and the Iowa School of Banking. He’s also completed several courses offered by Performance Trust University. These were focused on strategic planning and the principles of managing asset and liability decisions across bank balance sheets.
President/CEO Kurt Herbrechtsmeyer said, “One thing that impresses us about Chris is his banking experience. He has been successful at all levels, including customer-facing roles and in leadership positions determining overall bank strategy. We’re excited to have his depth of experience and perspective as we prepare for the future.”
Chris and his family have lived in Waverly, Iowa for the past 5 years. When asked what interested him about First Security and its market he said, “The bank’s lenders, key decision makers, and ownership are comprised of local individuals who have a vested interest in the communities they serve throughout North Central Iowa, and I look forward to being part of that.”
In addition to his career in banking, Chris operates a small grain farm and is an active volunteer. He is a Board Member of Bremer County Pheasants Forever, the Treasurer for the Redeemer Lutheran Church’s trust fund, and a volunteer coach for youth sports.
Chris and his wife Jessica have three kids – one in elementary school, one in middle school, and one in high school. They are an active family, attending many activities together. Chris particularly enjoys hunting and fishing and always looks forward to summer, when he and his family make frequent trips to the Mississippi River to enjoy the outdoors.
