ABOUT DUSTIN MATTHEWS, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER

Dustin_Matthews_Headshot

I began my banking career as a teller at my local community bank. I knew then banking was my future.

I joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City as an assistant bank examiner after graduating from Oklahoma State University with honors. Regulation always intrigued me – especially in my studies while attaining my business finance degree.

After many exams and countless trips across America examining banks, I became a commissioned bank examiner for the Federal Reserve. At that time, I came to a true appreciation and desire for developing and maintaining healthy regulatory relationships with the banks we examined – and helping those banks.

What I’ve learned is that community bankers wear a lot of hats. I was no exception when I rejoined my local community bank shortly after the 2008 financial collapse. During this time, I served on the board of directors, as the chief credit officer, ALCO chairman, and compliance officer. I experienced the windfall of regulatory change and its impact on community banks over the past decade. I remember working all day trying to serve customers, and sacrificing evenings and weekends figuring out how to meet the demands of the changing regulatory landscape.

I realized that my best contribution to the community banking industry would be to take weight off of bankers’ shoulders. My hope was that I could create a team dedicated to help you maintain your sanity, perform better, and have an ideal work/life balance.
