“Quontic has made significant strides envisioning what a community bank could be and where the brand wanted to go next,” shares Steve Schnall, Founder, and CEO of Quontic. “This started for us by hiring a Chief Innovation Officer about 18 months ago, which is a rare position in community banks and fueled a rapid period of growth and expansion on the national level. We realize that change is driven by our people and that ultimately Quontic is as good as our team. Our bank grows because our people grow. Under Mike’s leadership, we will double down on our culture and people. He is a natural fit with Quontic’s innovative culture and we are confident that he will elevate the work experience for every member of our Quontic team and attract a new generation of talent to our organization.”
