“Dan is proof that it doesn’t matter what you think you know, it only matters how hard you are willing to work,” said Bill Penney, President and CEO of the Bank. “He jokes that he once didn’t know the difference between an orange and grapefruit, and now he’s an industry leader. His belief that people are a business’s most valuable asset aligns with Marine Bank’s philosophy. Our shared passion to be an industry leader while forming lasting relationships makes him a perfect addition to our board of directors.”
