This was an exciting summer for our team. Not only did we accomplish a lot for our clients, but we also added three new hires to the CHB family: Anika Baker, James Meyer, and Liz Dike. Anika is a new face in our Client Services Department, so it’s possible you’ve met her already through your borrowers. Anika came to our team with a fantastic positive attitude. From day one, she was ready to build relationships, and she’s passionate about her work helping borrowers come up with solutions to their financial predicaments. As you know, our Client Services Department is here to help your borrower through the difficulties that come with servicing a loan. We help them avoid repossession and put them on a “get well” plan that will heal their business and lead them toward success. This approach to “working with” instead of “dealing with” the borrowers has paid dividends — we currently have the lowest default rate in CHB history! In addition to expanding our Client Services Department, we’ve also added James and Liz to the team as loan technicians. Both of them have proved to be excellent choices for the position. They have strong communication skills and pay close attention to the tiny details that can make or break a successful loan. Thanks to James, Liz, and their coworkers, our broker associates are highly informed and the loan application process is running smoothly.

Online Access Is Finally Here!

We’re so happy to have Anika, James, and Liz on the team here at CHB. To celebrate their hard work and the efforts of our whole company, our office will be closed on Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 5). We will resume our normal operating hours on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

Good news: We are now providing online access for CHB active loan account holders! Your borrowers will love this new tool. With it, they can check their loans online, gain insight into their businesses, and more easily access their end-of-year tax information. Online access will connect the CHB Team to our mutual, borrower clients from anywhere so they always feel supported and secure. When you’d ready to learn more about this new tool, contact CHB’s Client Services Department at ClientServices@chbef.com or 307-322-2545. Our team is available during normal duty hours to provide you more information about this new capability which increases borrower visibility of their account data and monthly payments.
