Causey ’85 a Minneapolis Top Woman in Finance

Julie Causey '85 is on the Minneapolis-based Finance and Commerce's list of the Top Women in Finance 2011. Causey is the third generation of her family running Western Bank, based in St. Paul, which works with small businesses and nonprofits. “I was struck by the fact that the bank had so much impact in the community and the Twin Cities economy,” said Causey, who hadn't originally intended to work at the bank. “I had been working with the biggest of big companies—huge, brand-name multinational companies. And this felt that it had some real impact and relevance.”—Finance & Commerce
