In a recent email Brandon said that his banking experience “taught me a significant about sending money globally and foreign transactions.”

Since July 2015 Brandon has worked for CoBank ACB processing wires as well as other operations duties. “It is definitely interesting to see how much money moves through the Fed each day, and just how sophisticated the US banking system is. I tend to prefer processing international transactions as there is a lot more to them, US dollar wires doing domestically are our most common form of payments.” (Last Updated 5/27/18)
