Bruce Shanks, Vice President, Commercial & Ag Lender

I enjoy working with my clients in Northern Indiana and the diversity of the crop production grown in Northwest Indiana. Helping their businesses grow and become successful is very rewarding.

Bruce joined First Farmers Bank & Trust in 2006 after spending 27 years in the Seed Corn Industry. He enjoys working with the employees at the banking Centers in Culver, Knox and North Judson.

He and his wife Melissa live in Plymouth. He enjoys playing tennis, working outdoors, and spending time with his family. They have two grown children and two grandchildren.
