#QuickTakes: Chris Lee

Chris Lee, a 2020 Rising Stars in Banking honoree, shares the life lessons he learned from a serious health scare, what he learned from starting in accounting, and how to build a strong career in banking.

“You have to really be proactive in managing your own career; somebody’s not going to do that for you,” said Lee, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Gate City Bank, Fargo, N.D. “You really need to think about what you want to do and how you want to get there.”
