Bob Barbeau – First Vice President, Asset Based Lending

bob-barbeauThis week’s edition of the Executive Broadcasting Channel’s podcast features Robert “Bob” Barbeau, First Vice President in Asset Based Lending of Community Bank.  Bob started his career in banking after applying for an Accounts Receivable Assets Based Auditor with Wells Fargo while working as the Mailroom Supervisor.  Someone took a chance on him, and now over 40 years later he is the First Vice President in Asset Based Lending for Community Bank.  His love for helping businesses grow and the in and outs of the industry has kept him going for all these years.

Looking at himself objectively, one of his most proud accomplishments is not suffering a loss on a bad loan monitored by his group.  Also, he lends some good advice for anyone looking to get into or grow within the industry.

He loves to teach.  He has given seminars at Pepperdine University to MBA students and many others.
