As Senior Market Executive, Tiskus is responsible for managing a team of commercial bankers that provide a full range of services to middle market businesses, including capital structure and financing alternatives, core treasury processes, capital markets optionality, global liquidity management, and project and equipment financing.

“The students involved in the Junior Achievement program are making measurable impact both in and out of the classroom,” said Tiskus. “I am proud to be a part of Junior Achievement’s continued commitment to preparing them for the future.”
