The Alpine Bank Family is pleased to welcome Cass Wolfenberger, Senior Vice President Mortgage Banking, and Michael Urnezis, Vice President Wholesale Lending.

Mr. Wolfenberger has been providing mortgage expertise to homebuyers, for over two decades.  He was employed by Alpine Bank before becoming an owner and co-founder of a successful, local mortgage banking firm.  He says, “That experience gave me the global view of not only the entire mortgage supply chain, but also the business practices required to be successful in a highly complex and competitive environment.”

As a Rockford native, Mr. Wolfenberger continues to give back to the area by volunteering for United Way, Breast Cancer awareness events and Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Mr. Urnezis has been in the financial industry for 20 years, with 16 of these years in the mortgage lending field.  He was an owner and co-founder of a mortgage banking firm, along with Mr. Wolfenberger.   A graduate of Illinois State University with a degree in Finance, Mr. Urnezis was born and raised in Rockford and currently resides in Boone County.

He remains active in the community by being a charter member and board member of The Parks Kiwanis Club and is active in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.  In addition to his community involvement, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three sons.
