We are excited to have Derek available to provide his knowledge and expertise to families to offer them the ability to make the most of the stewardship opportunities that are available to them through good financial planning. In addition, proper estate planning with services such as those that will be provided by Derek, can also assist in the sustainability of our local communities,” Generations Bank president and CEO Alan Emshoff said.
“My family and I are very excited to be back in the area and closer to the clients that I work with as well as the opportunity to become more involved in the community. Working alongside Alan, Ed and the staff at Generations Bank and FNIA, will be a great fit because we have similar philosophies when it comes to delivering value for our clients and customers and also striving to provide them with services to help build and protect their wealth,” Betka said.
