James really knows his stuff when it comes to the business and ag lending industry. After all, he has over 16 years of experience, making him an expert. He believes that owning a business takes a team, and your business banker is an essential player on your roster.

When asked his favorite thing about CorTrust Bank, James noted the third generation family ownership. “My absolute favorite part about working for a family-owned community bank is that our decisions are locally made. Plus, people that have been born and raised in the communities they serve make all these decisions. That is a real advantage,” said James.
