JOSEPH M.WINSTON COMMUNITY COMMITMENT AWARD
I’ve always based things on the three “Cs”. Capacity. Collateral. Character. When Joe Winston and MacArthur Weddle met with me to finance the existing building for Northcott they were short on everything, but they had more Character than I’d seen in most. Needless to say the rest is history.
Michael J. Falbo was president of the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents from 2013-2015 and appointed to the Board of Regents in 2004. He served as interim president of the Universities of Wisconsin in 2022. Mike’s leadership and advocacy spans more than four decades. He began his career in banking as an auditor in 1973. By 1983 Mike was named the president and CEO of State Bank Hales Corners. Under his leadership, the company successfully integrated numerous acquisitions, growing total assets from $75 million and 70 employees to 432 employees. Through careful strategic planning, he orchestrated growth of the company in a very competitive industry through challenging economic times. Mike served as chairman and CEO of TierOne Bank based in Lincoln, Neb. TierOne Corporation is the parent company of TierOne Bank, a $3.1 billion federally chartered savings bank and the largest publicly traded financial institution headquartered in Nebraska. Mike was previously chairman of Associated Bank Community Development, LLC, an affiliate of Associate Banc Corp. He is the former chairman and CEO of State Financial Services Corporation, a $1.5 billion financial services company that was based in Milwaukee, with operations in Wisconsin and Illinois. The company was the fifth-largest bank holding company in the state and was publicly traded on the Nasdaq National Market System. Mike served in the United States Army and completed a tour in Vietnam as a combat medic. He was honorably discharged in 1971. Mike earned his Bachelor of Science in business and accounting from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
