Mr. Swenson spent his first two years of college as a music major but ended up earning a B.A. Political Science Legal Studies from UW – Eau Claire. Although he never served in the military, he served the public as a Rural Associate Carrier with the U.S.P.S. and as an Enumerator with the U.S. Census Bureau (Dept. of Commerce) in 2000 for MN on the side early in college. From 2001 to 2006 he worked in financial services marketing. His public service continues to this day as he sits on the Federal Reserve System’s Secure Payment Task Force as a voice for academia and industry.

In 2007 he began research in his M.B.A. program on the growing risk of sub-prime mortgage lending where he forecasted some of the firms that would file for bankruptcy including Bear Stearns, Countywide, New Century Mortgage, etc. He did much of this under the advisement of executive mentors while working at U.S. Bank.

While consulting at other financial institutions, this research expanded to include financial services marketing, community banking, and project management. It has been positively recognized by many bank executives, including the CEO of U.S. Bank, Richard Davis, former Wells Fargo CEO, John Stumpf, and the former CFO of Klein Bank, Ron Seib. It has since been made into an E-Book: “Financial Services Marketing, Risk, & Innovation” (c) by Jeremy Swenson, 2009. If you want a copy of it, you can contact Mr. Swenson here.
