The Associated Bank is a new partner of The Opening Bell, and we are excited to be starting a weekly segment showing The Associated Bank Thought Leaders. Steve will be chatting with pioneers in the industry to provide wise perspectives, with a fortitude of experience backing them up.
The first conversation featured Breck Hanson, Vice Chairman and former Head of Commercial Real Estate at Associated Bank. Steve brought up the burning question in the retail sector: is brick and mortar retail doomed? Steve and Breck also touched on the developing Chicago CRE market, companies flocking to the Midwest, and much more.
