Upon opening in Spring 2021, the bank’s operations will be overseen by financial services expert Kruse, a long-time St. Petersburg resident with more than 20 years of experience in the financial sector. In his new role as Vice President, Branch Manager and Small Business Banker, he will drive Climate First Bank (I/O) to serve the community and the environment while also achieving and exceeding all business development and revenue generation goals.
