Willie is a Minneapolis native and graduate of the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis, where he double majored in Accounting and Entrepreneurship. He is joining Versique after spending the last 3+ years in FinTech and Banking; he started out of school in search, both on the candidate generation and business development sides. As a former Banker who has served on multiple Loan Committees, Willie brings firsthand knowledge and expertise to the Banking and Financial Services team combined with a personable approach to networking, relationship management, and problem-solving.
When he’s not at work, Willie enjoys all things sports or social and can often be seen cruising the lakes in his classic VW Beetle. He also serves on the Board of the Minneapolis South High School Baseball Boosters and is an active volunteer in the community.
