If you’ve been in the Corridor business community for even a short time, you already know Tom Cilek. He’s a 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 new monthly podcast, “Tom Cilek’s New Best Friend,” presented by (his employer) West Bank. In the latest episode of Tom Cilek’s New Best Friend, Tom sits down with attorney and Iowa City institution Bob Downer, to discuss memories of town, Bob’s time on the Iowa State Board of Regents and his advice for the next generation of change agents.
