#QuickTakes: Shawn Rost

Shawn Rost, immediate past chair of the South Dakota Bankers Association, relates the ups and downs of local ag, loan demand and tourism, describes how adoption of technology and working from home have accelerated, and shares FDIC Chair Jelena McWilliams message to SDBA bankers at their annual convention.

“People are finding new ways to do business,” he said. “Some of the later adopters of technology are seeing a reason why they need to adopt it, they’re jumping in with both feet.”

Rapid City-based Rost is South Dakota Market President for First Interstate Bank, Billings, Mont.
