Pieroni was presented with the award at RCEDC’s Annual Meeting on Thursday, April 14. This is the second consecutive year that Pieroni has received the award.
The RCEDC Lender of the Year Award is presented annually to an individual that assists small businesses in the community by partnering with RCEDC’s financial arm, Business Lending Partners, who facilitates low interest loans throughout Racine County.
“Being able to support and guide local business owners towards building their dream is one of the best parts of being a community banker,” Pieroni said. “RCEDC and Business Lending Partners have been great resources for our bank and local business owners. I appreciate their partnership and also am very grateful to be chosen once again for this award.”
Pieroni has been in the banking industry for over 20 years focusing in the Kenosha County area, but also assisting local businesses in the Racine & Kenosha corridor. He began at Community State Bank in 2018 as Market President of the Kenosha location.
Pieroni also has a long history of being involved in the community by dedicating his time towards local organizations such as Kiwanis Breakfast Club of Kenosha (21 years), Cub Scout Pack 328 (6 years), Central Falcons Trap and Skeet Team, and also serving as Commissioner for the Town of Brighton.
“At Community State Bank we seek ways to provide opportunity to our customers, businesses, and communities,” CSB President and CEO, Scott Huedepohl said. “One of the ways we do this is by connecting local business owners to community organizations that can help their business succeed.
“Robert does a fantastic job of making those connections and realizing the impact it has on our community when we work together. Congratulations Robert on your award.”
