There’s a new banker in town

Jordan Guyer is the new face at C US Bank-Lime Springs.

Jordan Guyer may be new to Lime Springs, but he isn’t new to the area. Guyer took over as Senior Ag Lender/Loan Office Manager at the local branch of C US Bank the first of October. Duane Johnson left the position after 20 years. Guyer said he was lucky to work with Johnson since April.

“The six months Duane and I were together was spent getting to know the customer base,” he explained. Johnson even may have clued Guyer in on a few tricks of the trade, although the new manager didn’t need much training.

He grew up on a farm near Clermont. He went to Ellsworth Community College and graduated from Iowa State. You might get an earful if you ask him about his Cyclones! His major was Ag Business and Finance.

He has worked in banks in West Union and Cresco for the past 27 years. Last year he had left and was working at another bank in Sheffield, and this job came up. “My family and I were happy to stay in the area.”

He might be a little partial to Howard County and Howard-Winneshiek since two of his children, Chelsea and Zach graduated from Crestwood, and Megan and Noah are in high school there. Zach followed his dad to Iowa State while Chelsea opted for UNI. Howard County is also convenient for wife Patti, with her job as a registered nurse in Rochester.

Much of Guyer’s spare time is spent attending his children’s activities, but he also enjoys home improvement projects and golfing.

He is currently the treasurer for Spring Ahead Learning Center. In the past he has been involved with Cresco Chamber, Cresco Industrial Development, Notre Dame School Board President, SIAC (School Improvement Advisory Committee), Howard-Winneshiek Foundation Board, RAGBRAI and others.

His experience in a variety of areas will definitely be beneficial to him in his new position in Lime Springs. He just hopes to continue providing customer satisfaction as his predecessor and current staff do.

“I really like working with the staff and customers,” he said. One thing that was a pleasant surprise when he started working in the branch office was its customer base. “For a small town, there is a very large loan portfolio. The Lime Springs bank draws customers from a pretty wide area. I credit that to Duane,” Guyer commented.

Guyer has made a smooth transition into his new position and is happy to serve the residents of Lime Springs and area. Next time you’re in the bank, stop by his office and tell him “Hi” and ask how the cardinal and gold are doing!
