Written by Angela Evans
Loraine Hardin has been hired as the Executive Vice President for the Government Guaranteed Lending, Mortgage and Entrepreneurial Operating Systems (EOS) Departments for Lincoln Savings Bank (LSB). Prior to joining LSB, Hardin was a self-employed consultant for Hardin and Associates working with companies, including LSB over the past two year to implement our EOS process. Hardin earned a degree in Finance from the University of Iowa College of Business.
In her LSB role, she will be responsible for leading the growth and profitability of the Government Guaranteed and Mortgage lending departments, as well as leading and supporting the operating model for the bank. Hardin’s experience and proven ability to build strong, high-performing teams and prepare them to navigate any challenge or opportunity effectively made her ideal for this role. Having worked with the LSB leadership teams as a consultant, she saw their strong commitment to LSB’s core values and knew it would be a great match for her.
“I am most excited to be part of a team that lives and breathes the core values of the bank,” said Hardin.
Community involvement is important to Hardin. She serves as the President of CultureALL, an Iowa-based non-profit that focuses on world culture education. She is also the Co-President of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) in Iowa that represents the interests of all women-entrepreneurs. It is important to Hardin to make connections, gain understanding, and ultimately help make dreams come true by extending a helping hand.
Hardin grew up in Webster City, IA and now resides in the Des Moines area. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, gardening, bicycling, hiking, traveling, and spending time with her grandchildren and grand-dogs. She also has two adult children: Madison, who resides in Colorado with her family, and Colin, who resides in Des Moines.
