“Please don’t tell my mother I’m a consultant. She thinks I’m a guitar player in a strip joint.”


Yes, it’s true! GonzoBanker is run by a bunch of consultants. Although a general feeling of malaise and nausea usually strikes people when they hear the word “consultant,” we want to assure you that things are much different with the GonzoBankers.

So let’s set things straight:

GonzoBankers like to emphasize reality over theory, projects we can get done vs. unattainable dreams, and a no-BS approach when interacting with our clients. We spend a lot of our nights at Hampton Inns and Marriotts around the country, working with bankers who are actually implementing the new ideas and systems that vendors, consultants and the press continually foist on this industry. (We also are addicted to the free coffee and stale doughnuts at these places!)

Our consulting group, Cornerstone Advisors, Inc., can provide some serious help to financial institutions in the areas of technology and e-commerce planning, strategic planning, vendor selection, contract negotiation, performance improvement and merger integration services. For the past decade, we’ve helped hundreds of financial institutions make stuff really happen.
