I appreciate that I work for a well respected bank in the community with a strong history. I am so glad I have been a part of Commerce Bank for over 15 years, they have offered a environment where I have been able to grow and develop personally and professionally. Also, if you are motivated by helping others succeed, grow, and develop this is a perfect position.
