TRUST / CONFIDENCE / EXECUTION

Three words, that when delivered upon, form the foundational elements for successful and enduring life-long relationships. Rick Dudek has built his brand by delivering on these principals, and he is known for being both an advocate as well as an advisor in the partnerships he continues to develop and cultivate every day. As part of the Chicago Commercial Banking scene for over 30 years, Rick focuses on privately-held manufacturing businesses whose value add has positioned them at or near the top of their competitive segment, as well as service businesses that differentiate themselves through the utilization of cutting edge strategic initiatives.

Rick joined the Commercial Banking team in 2019 after 25 years in leadership positions, most recently 9 years at Wells Fargo, where Rick developed and led the top producing commercial team 7 years running. Rick's formal credit training was learned at The Northern Trust Company, and he has also has invested in his career by spending time in Risk Asset Review assignments at several of the organizations he has been part of. Understanding how credit analysis, loan structure, and industry risk align within a bank's risk appetite has been a hallmark strength that Rick brings to new client opportunities, which has allowed him to bridge the gaps that often occur between the client and the Bank, resulting in more win-win situations for both.

Rick has held Board positions with both ACCION' Chicago and The Greater O'Hare Association ("GOA"), and has been active in the Tooling and Manufacturing Association and Turnaround Management Association during his Chicago banking career. Rick has been an active participant in the Cook and Lake County divisions of Habitat For Humanity, and is exploring opportunities within BoA to become involved in our Environmental Leadership Council.

Rick and his Wife (Jannet) are passionate about global travel and the benefits of learning about different cultures, enjoy golf, and live in McHenry County, where Rick served his Community over 10 years as an elected official. Rick earned both his Bachelors and Masters Degrees from DePaul University in Chicago, and is an avid Blackhawks and Chicago Bears fan.
