Krall joins Longview Bank

Brad Krall is coming home.

Krall is now the Loan Officer and Mortgage Lender at Longview Bank in St. Joseph.

Krall’s history with Longview dates back to when he attended St. Joseph-Ogden High School.

“I actually opened my first bank account at the St. Joseph Branch back when we were St. Joseph First and I was attending SJO,” he said. “It’s almost a banking homecoming of sorts joining the great team here at Longview Bank. Longview has been serving and continues to serve our local community that we live in and love. I’m very excited to be able to join such a great team in their dedication to providing personal, high quality customer service.”

Krall has worked in banking for 20 years. Originally, he went to college to study law, then psychology. A part-time job at a local campus bank as a teller showed Krall he enjoyed working in finance.

“That pretty much had me hooked,” he said.

Krall is also hooked on the St. Joseph Community where he has lived for 27 years.

“The people in our communities here are some of the best you can find,” he said. “The way everyone cares for and looks out for each other is really special and I’m thankful to be a part of it and raise my family here. Same with our local banks here and how at Longview we want to help and take care of these wonderful local communities we love. I’m glad to be a part of it.”

Previously, Krall worked as a personal banker, assistant branch manager and then branch manager of another local bank.

“I have enjoyed every year of service to the public,” he said.

Krall said that is what he enjoys most regarding his new job at Longview—working with the public.
“I love helping people,” he said. “I like to think of it as helping make people’s dreams come true. I like to say that sales agents do a great job finding the best boat, car, home, etc, that someone has always been dreaming of, but the Loan Officer gets to help make that dream a reality.”

Krall said he enjoys working with people to find the right loan for their needs.

“We will work hard to help find the best product to fit your need and will walk you thru that process from start to finish,” he said.

Krall can be contacted at 217-469-8866 or by visiting the St. Joseph Longview Branch at 220 E. Grand Ave, St. Joseph.
