2019 Denver LPO Announcement

July 2019
Parkside Financial Bank & Trust is proud to announce the opening of a loan production office (LPO) in Denver, Colorado. As a leader in the St. Louis market, we are excited to bring our financial expertise and unparalleled service to the Rocky Mountain region. This move represents Parkside's first
satellite office. "Parkside's emphasis on access to decision-makers and truly customized solutions helps us stand out from our competitors," says Parkside President, Andrew Hereford. "We believe this will translate well in the growing Denver market." We welcome our new team member, Senior Vice President - Commercial Lender, David Bell. David is currently the sole Denver-based Parkside
representative. He will focus on providing financial solutions to middle market commercial and industrial businesses, private equity sponsored transactions, and commercial real estate opportunities throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
 
Strategic Expansion
Since our inception in 2008, Parkside is proud to have built relationships in nearly 30 states, providing unparalleled service from our single location in St. Louis. Many of our current clients maintain homes or operate businesses in the Rocky Mountain region. In addition, our employees, directors, shareholders and clients have built strong connections in this expanding market, making Denver a natural fit for our team. The strategic deployment of this LPO will allow us to establish new relationships and continue to serve our existing clients in the area.
