Tom Cilek’s New Best Friend: John Lundell

Tom Cilek

If you’ve been in the Corridor business community for even a short time, you already know Tom Cilek. He’s a senior vice president at a bank, a former lawyer and one of the Corridor’s most connected business leaders. He loves making new friends, and making things happen in Eastern Iowa.

We’ve decided to capture Tom’s inside conversations with the region’s leading business minds in a monthly podcast, “Tom Cilek’s New Best Friend,” presented by (his employer) West Bank.

In the latest episode, Tom sits down with Coralville Mayor John Lundell to talk about his work as mayor, how he and his team have worked in the wake of the area’s floods, and what partnership means to the city. The two also discuss John’s passion for woodworking, his experience as a firefighter, and his friendship with President Joe Biden.
