Norris

Title: Vice President/Bank Manager

Company: BMO Harris Bank

What was the best business advice you ever received?

When you take a new position or manage a new group never hesitate to try something new or different, think outside the box, and don't be afraid to take a chance. It served me well.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

Be a culinary chef and intrepid world traveler like Anthony Bourdain, visiting new cultures and try new foods. Although I would not eat just anything as he does on his program.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

Moving from Ohio to Florida. I'd applied for a job but did not know anybody here. I picked up, moved and, although a risk, it was the best thing I'd ever done.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

Europe, specifically Ireland. I'd visit all the European countries and see cultural and historical sites.
