Willem (Warren) Baas joined First Business Bank as Vice President – SBA Lending in 2021. 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. Eventually he helped his wife, Kelsey, fund and start up her own physical therapy clinic in Waco, TX, prompting a move from Houston. The enjoyment Warren experienced during that time 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.
In addition to working with business owners, Warren enjoys cooking and kitchen gadgets, the Detroit Red Wings, exercise and playing sports, ice cream, and family time.
