Warren Baas Joins First Business Bank as Vice President – SBA Lending

MADISON, WI – May 26, 2021 –  First Business Bank is pleased to announce that Willem (Warren) Baas was hired as Vice President – SBA Lending.

“Warren is a great addition to our team,” Marty Ferguson, Managing Director of SBA Lending, said. “He’s very passionate about helping small- and medium-sized businesses grow because he has a lot of empathy for them as a small business owner himself. His experience with a wide range of businesses in different industries is a fantastic asset for our productive SBA team.”

Warren graduated with a business degree from Baylor University and began his career as a physical commodities trader, while helping friends and family develop business concepts in his free time. He and his wife, Kelsey, funded and started her physical therapy clinic in Waco, TX, prompting a move from Houston. The experience inspired him to make a career change to help business owners succeed and grow. SBA lending was a perfect fit and natural extension of his ability and instincts. His experience as both a small business lender and a small business owner gives him unique insight into the daily struggles of the small business owner.
