Sales & Acquisitions Consulting

Tier1 BSA is a division of BankNews Media. 

The mission of Tier1 BSA is to help bankers sell their banks. Tier1 BSA also assists banks and individuals looking for a bank to acquire by defining the characteristics and location of the bank they want to acquire, and then finding banks for sale that best fit that description.

Joe Holman is the principal management person for Tier1 BSA. Joe's experience consists of 30 years as a family bank owner, bank director and full-time practicing bank attorney (currently with Martin Pringle, a Kansas law firm with offices in Kansas City and Wichita).

Joe is currently an active board member of a million bank, where he serves on the asset liability/funds management committee and on the audit committee.

His legal experience includes all facets of banking law, including representation of banks and bankers related to bank regulatory matters at all levels. His representation also covers counseling banks in raising capital to buy banks, along with preparing and filing the offering documents at the federal and state securities agencies (SEC representation).

With this level of experience, Tier1 BSA can guide bankers through the legal, accounting and bank regulatory environment needed for bank acquisitions and sales.

Joe and his wife, Janet, own BankNews Media. BankNews Media has been serving the banking industry for more than 100 years, and its print, online and digital publications are read by thousands of bank professionals.

BankNews Media publishes BankNews magazine, the leading independent publication for community banks nationwide. Complementing BankNews are two executive newsletters, BankNews Mid-Week and The Bank Board Letter, and two e-newsletters, BankNews eDigest and BankNews Technology Focus. 

The company’s Contract Publishing division offers a range of services to state banking associations, from editorial and advertising sales, to design, printing and mailing. BankNews Media also publishes state bank directories for 18 states.

Tier1 BSA uses this coast-to-coast and state-by-state contact information for bankers wanting to sell their bank and for bankers searching for banks to acquire.
