Last week, I wrote about our annual company meeting and the philanthropic event through which we sent 500 TASC employees out into the community to volunteer at various non-profit organizations. This was the largest volunteering effort TASC has ever undertaken. Giving back at such a large scale is certainly gratifying, but so is giving back on a smaller, more personal level.
On March 12, 2015, the State Bank of Cross Plains, a full-service community bank with nine offices in Dane County, appointed me to serve on the bank’s Board of Directors. In doing so, Bank President and CEO Jim Tubbs said “Daniel’s 32 years of broad experience across important industries will add a valuable perspective to our Board of Directors… We appreciate his willingness to serve as a Director and look forward to benefiting from his judgment and counsel.”
Those are high words of praise, and I am truly honored to join this Board. I grew up on a dairy farm in north central Wisconsin, and this background helps me understand just how vital these local banks are to small rural communities. And these days, as a business owner, I continue to benefit in countless ways from the wisdom, experience, and insight of the TASC Board of Advisers.
I know what an important position I’ve been asked to undertake. Trust me; I take the responsibility very seriously. And just as I try to do at TASC, I hope to bring an innovative and agile mindset to the State Bank of Cross Plains. I’m pleased to be part of the fine team that ensures continued easy access to the bank’s services paired with efficient and effective service for each and every customer.
