Meet Our CEO
Eyeing the future, respecting the past.
After a century of success, the bank chose their seventh CEO because of his unique perspective, exemplary financial services career and his passion for continuing the spirit of the community at the Bank of Sun Prairie.
Jimmy Kauffman has the unique distinction of being the first CEO who is not a former employee of the bank. However, he is no stranger to Wisconsin. He understands the future of community banking, providing customers with knowledgeable, personal service and the importance of technology to enhance banking convenience.
Kauffman’s approach reflects that of a hands-on, dedicated professional. In fact, customers have grown accustomed to his presence, especially on the business banking front. “I enjoy going out to meet and learn about all of the businesses that have entrusted us as their partner,” Kauffman says. “It helps us understand what we can do to improve their experience.”
Jimmy believes in doing right by customers by employing motivated people and providing a great environment in which to grow. His customer service model boils down to empowering people with passion to enrich the lives of customers and clients by improving their own skillset. This type of service model provides limitless potential to build long-lasting relationships.
Kauffman, his wife Mary and five children have lived in Sun Prairie for the past decade, where he’s a board member for the Sun Prairie Historical Museum. In addition he has served on the board for the Sun Prairie Business and Education Partnership along with being a former Board President of Community Coordinated Child Care.
