JOB RESPONSIBILITIES

The primary role of a Banker Associate is growing and retaining profitable relationships within the MMBSI target space (companies with revenues between $20 and $500 million) and learning and developing the ability to manage a portfolio through on the job training.  Under direct supervision of more senior relationship bankers, Associates deliver value added solutions to clients, but do not typically handle meetings involving key clients.  Individuals in this position have developed the experience to function as the lead on smaller accounts and as backup on larger clients. Associates establish rapport with clients through regular contact by phone and in person, and develop the ability to identify financial needs and recommend appropriate products and services. You must optimize portfolio revenue opportunities and balance revenue growth across products and services, and find opportunities to sell products and services to clients across LOBs. Banker Associates execute a sales coverage plan and must be willing to expand personal skills and knowledge of the industry. Associates work closely with the relationship team and will have various internal and external responsibilities related to customer management.
