Bo Knows Good IRA Rates and How to Restructure Debt

ept_sports_mlb_experts-369489620-1240415212Finally, residents of Burr Ridge, Illinois have a bank, and a banker to trust. In these uncertain economic times, the local bank takes on all the more importance and so who better to entrust your money to than one of the greatest physical freaks of talent ever, Bo Jackson.

In addition to several others, Jackson is backing the newly chartered bank, the Burr Ridge Bank and Trust, and despite the failings of many other banks, Jackson et al have few concerns about their new venture. “We have no type of debt, like all the other banks. We’re a small community bank and one thing we all decided, is that if we are going to do a bank in our community, it needs to be owned by the people who live in the community,” Jackson said.

Since his retirement from sports, Bo has been a pretty successful businessman, including owning and operating a gigantic sports complex and his food company, N’Genuity in addition to his regular speaking engagements for schools and similar organizations. The other charter members of the bank are excited for the chance to be working with Bo, “We interviewed Bo. He was very committed to growing the bank and being part of our organization, not just a name,” said Roy Thygesen, CEO and president of the bank.

Alas, Bo’s sporting days are long past, the 46 year old these days only plays one game; “I’m crushing golf balls, when I hit it straight. I’m enjoying being an employer,” said Jackson.
