Steve Sherman is a founder and the Chief Operating Officer of GreenChoice Bank, the first holistically sustainability-oriented community bank in the Midwest.  Sherman is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP) who, prior to founding GreenChoice Bank, was at LaSalle Bank, where he served as a strategic advisor to the President of the bank.  When LaSalle was acquired by Bank of America in 2007, he saw the need for a different kind of bank that was conscious of the needs of its customers, its communities, and the environment.  Sherman also began his career in commercial banking at LaSalle, as a loan officer and relationship manager for middle-market commercial customers. Before returning to his career roots, he left LaSalle for a short time to work as a consultant at The Cambridge Group, a consumer brand strategy consultancy, and as a strategy and business development executive with Baxter Healthcare Corporation.


Involved in a number of community organizations, Sherman has served in key leadership positions with the boards at the Emergency Fund, a Chicago-area non-profit dedicated to homelessness prevention, as well as The Latin School of Chicago and Roadworks Productions. He holds a master’s degree in business administration from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and a bachelor’s degree in economics and music from Stanford University.
