One of Champaign’s 40 Under 40 Works Right Here
By: Aaron Sapp
Justin Gensler knows how to make things happen. When he joined INB earlier this year, we didn’t have an office in Champaign, but he made do. With laptop and cell phone in hand, he worked out of a local coffee shop until we could open our doors at 2309 Village Green.
From the start, Justin’s found success with INB. Today he says his business has almost doubled from those early days in the coffee shop. But we’d expect nothing less from a guy who once told us, “Banking has always been my passion.” So much so, he started his banking career at age 15 1/2.
Justin, age 29 and NMLS #611367, recently earned a spot on the Central Illinois Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list. He puts the honor right up there with being nominated for the 2015 Affiliate of the Year by the Champaign County Association of Realtors. “Both of the awards are nomination-based, and someone took the time out of their busy schedule to nominate (me).”
