David McSwain’s passion for small business began when he was a boy in a small town in Oklahoma. He learned the intricacies
of operations and hard work from the ground up: raising cattle, working at a grain elevator, hauling hay, starting his own lawn mowing business, and then as a bank teller – all before he graduated from high school. Growing up in a banking family, the bank felt like a second home to him as he quickly learned every facet of the industry from global credit analysis and managing bank portfolios to eventually handling loan and bank acquisitions in Oklahoma.
While working, he pursued his degree in Business Administration at the University of Central Oklahoma and went on to receive a professional masters from L.S.U. in Professional Banking and a professional masters degree from the graduate school of commercial lending. He strongly believes in continuing education and keeping up with the ever-changing rules in banking and loan regulation.
In addition to nearly twenty years working as a Chief Loan Officer and managing bank personnel in Oklahoma, his work in commercial real estate development and managing properties taught him even more valuable skills about investing and running successful enterprises.
He brings the breadth of his career portfolio to consulting community banks today in Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas. David understands operations from both sides of the desk – the loan officer and the customer – and brings his education and experience in loan risk management directly to banks where he can work one on one with you to ensure regulatory checks are in place through analysis and strategic vision.
