RHINO NATION Julie Fletcher with Enterprise Bank and Trust and Michelle Micalizzi with Apex Medical Reimbursement Solutions

We tailor our services to fit the needs of our clients and have all the capabilities of the largest financial companies with the personal relationship orientation of a community bank. We offer a comprehensive array of banking, trust and financial advisory services.
By sticking to our original idea, we now have over $5 billion in assets. Headquartered in Clayton, MO, Enterprise Bank and Trust operates 28 branch offices in the St. Louis, Kansas City, and Phoenix metropolitan areas. Enterprise Bank and Trust offers a range of business and personal banking services, and wealth management services including financial planning, estate planning, investment management and trust services to business, individuals, institutions, retirement plans, and non-profit organizations.
