Executive Director, The District
Treasury Sales Officer, The Bank of Missouri
Geoff Karr is a Treasury Sales Officer at The Bank of Missouri. What the heck does that mean?? It means we help businesses WIN, all the while providing solutions to help clients manage their day-to-day operation, which is more formerly referred to as Cash Flow Cycle.
Geoff has spent 14 years in the Banking industry, which includes four total stints at two different banks (I can explain.) During his career, his positions include Bank Teller, Branch Manager, Real Estate Lender, SBA Loan Officer, Commercial Lender, Sales Manager and now a Treasury Professional.
Being a banker has allowed Geoff to be a problem solver and help clients reach their pinnacle of defined success. In banking this can take many forms but right now it’s helping the bank clients flourish, being an extension of their sales team, and one day telling stories of how business clients achieved financial freedom.
