Starion Bank has hired Jon Konarske as a Business Development Officer.

Konarske comes to Starion with more than 20 years of experience in sales, marketing, publishing and business account management. As a Business Development Officer, Konarske will work to establish and grow Starion’s commercial relationships in the greater Madison community.

“I’m thrilled to join the Starion Bank team. Starion is a family-owned community bank with great people, strong Midwest values and a real growth mindset,” says Konarske. “Madison has such an entrepreneurial culture. Over the years, I’ve watched the business community expand, and it’s exciting to enter a new role in helping both emerging and existing businesses.”

Konarske earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and communications from the University of Iowa Tippie College of Business. He is active in the community as President of the Board of Directors at Hawks Landing Swim & Dive Club, and as an advisory board member for Dane County Salvation Army.

Market President Jeff Cook is excited about the new addition. “We hired Terry Murawski as our first Business Development Officer in 2021, with great success. Bringing Jon onboard with Terry creates a highly skilled team that will further strengthen Starion’s ability to help local Madison businesses innovate and grow.”
