Tricia Fraij returns to Columbus First Bank as a Vice President in the commercial banking department, assisting clients with both their lending and deposit needs. She was one of the bank’s first employees in 2007, working with the team until 2009 when her family moved to Germany.
Tricia’s career in banking began in 1993 with Old Kent Bank (Grand Rapids, Michigan), where she was a branch manager and product manager, eventually relocating to Columbus in 2001 to join the marketing department of Fifth Third Bank.
In 2004, she moved to Prospect Bank, where she worked with Columbus First founders Rhett Huddle and John Smiley. When Prospect was sold to Sky Bank, Tricia assumed the role of Business Banker there until it was later sold to a large regional bank.
A 1993 graduate of Calvin College with a B.A. in Business, Tricia also earned a masters degree in Management from Aquinas College. She and her husband have two sons and reside in Hilliard, Ohio.
