Linda Kuchenberg

Linda Kuchenberg, residential loan originator at First National Bank and Trust recently announced plans to retire effective Feb. 28.

She has more than 20 years of mortgage lending experience. She joined the FNBT family in February 2016, serving the Williams Bay and surrounding communities by providing Sound Advice to homebuyers looking for the right loan programs to fit their individual needs.

“I have been blessed to work for banks with great managers and will miss the interaction between co-workers, title companies, builders and associates, and customers of the bank that have become friends,” Kuchenberg said in reflecting on her banking career.

Her retirement plans include traveling with her husband, spending time in Osseo, enjoying the outdoors, visiting the Eau Claire farmers markets and cooking for her family and friends.

An open house reception honoring Kuchenberg will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 28 at FNBT’s Williams Bay branch located at 121 N Walworth Ave. Community members, friends, and colleagues are welcome to stop by to wish her well in her retirement.

As a figure such as herself is retiring, her patrons and clients might also be looking for other mortgage lenders with experience as much as she has. In the event of her retirement, these clients can use the time to inquire to her about lenders who provide mortgage solutions wholesale or other queries related to mortgage lending.
