Member Spotlight – Sunflower Bank

Creating Possibility is what we do” caught my attention on a publication from Sunflower Bank.  It is incredible how much banking has changed from the teller window of the past, intended for deposits and withdrawals only, to today’s banking options and on-line banking capabilities.  Sunflower Bank hosted the Chamber Connections, introducing the key leadership and showcase the multitude of services offered through their diverse roles.  More details available on their website

Bill Christopher, Branch Manager and VP of the McPherson Sunflower Bank introduced Sue Niernberger who has been a part of Sunflower Bank 28 years and is currently responsible for Treasury Management Solutions.  Sue remembers when the McPherson Sunflower Bank (then Pioneer Savings) was acquired in 1994.  After adding many more Sunflower Bank locations, they merged with First National Bank in Denver, increasing their asset portfolio from $2 million to $4 million.  Now Sunflower Bank has branches in 5 states!

Dustin Jackson is a wealth management advisor for the Wichita, McPherson and KC area.  Wealth Management is an institution of Sunflower Bank that is responsible for helping customers manage assets though retirement planning & trust administration.  Dustin said he does not work on commission and is a fiduciary advisor with a legal duty to act in your best interest.

Steve Weis is a mortgage lender and said he “has the best job at the bank”!  Steve has been with Sunflower Bank for 22 years and helps customers with all types of home loans including First Time Home Buyers (FHA) loans, Rural Development loans and refinancing too. Sunflower Bank maintains the services, so the loans won’t be sold to an outside agency.

The associate manager at Sunflower Bank in McPherson is Carlyn Lemon.  Carlyn told about the many ways that Sunflower Bank gives back and the current promotions. Ask her how you can get up to $200 by opening a Convenience Checking account.  Another great promotion is the Spend & Sign & Save that rounds up your debit card purchases and deposits the change into your savings.  Bill Christopher said Sunflower Bank also has Health Saving Accounts and loan options for boats, cars, RV’s. small business loans, business credit cards and so much more.
