Susan Shafer

As Vice President of Commercial Banking, Susan is an advocate for her commercial real estate clients. She enjoys assisting builders and developers on projects from the beginning planning stages through completion and stabilization. Susan also manages the bank’s regional construction draw process, including homebuilder inspections and approvals.


Susan started with FNBO in 2009 as a Commercial Credit Analyst, before moving into portfolio management in 2014. Susan has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Kansas and is affiliated with the Kansas City Home Builder’s Association as well as KC CREW.


With two small children in the house, Susan happily spends a lot of time “chasing” after them, but that doesn’t keep her from actively engaging in home do-it-yourself projects. Susan also proclaims herself a loyal KU basketball fan and enjoys catching a game as often as she can.
