Denise Hewitt

As a Senior Advisor for Community Banking, Denise takes pride in supporting the success of local businesses by partnering with commercial entities across all phases of development. She lends her experience in banking to support a grander community vision, one where area businesses achieve growth and add to the society at large.


Denise’s career in banking started in lending, where she acted as a loan secretary before being promoted to a retail lender in 1995. Building on her previous successes, she soon became the branch manager of FNBO’s Plano location, before moving to her current role as a commercial lender.

Denise attended various courses at Waubonsee Community College, gaining a broad set of knowledge and skills, before attending the Graduate Banking School at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.


If you’re ever wondering what Denise is up to when she’s not in the office, take a look at her list of civic affiliations. You could easily find her working with the Plano Economic Development Corporation as treasurer, on the finance committee at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, as a member of the Plano Rotary, or in her new role on the Small Business Development Board at Waubonsee Community College. To keep in shape for her many responsibilities, she enjoys running. When it comes to relaxing, she chooses to spend time with her grandchildren.
