Several members of the BDPros team met a commercial banker at a networking event.
The commercial banker shared that the bank was opening additional branches and they were working to increase awareness in those regions to drive new business. The commercial banker had minimal time to locate new business while still closing deals and supporting current clients.
BDPros provided outbound sales activities to schedule meetings for the commercial banker to assist in increasing the banker’s client base.
With a list provided by the bank and the consistent refining of contacts, phone numbers, and email addresses, BDPros set meetings for the commercial banker.

The efforts by BDPros brought in over 3 million dollars over the length of the relationship.
Pending underwriting, nearly 2 million dollars worth of loans were approved for the financial institution.
Over the length of the partnership, 154 total meetings were scheduled for the bankers involved.
