Name: Charles "Pop" Lassmann
City of residence: Mission Valley
Current title: Rancher and retired banker
First job: My first job was at First Victoria National Bank. I started there in college when I took a temporary bookkeeper position and stayed on 40 and-a-half years. Temporarily.
What it taught me: I learned the value of people and what customer service means in a business institution. I always told people we weren't in the money business. We were in the people business.
