SVP/Regional Credit Director

What I enjoy most about working at Bell are the people I work with. Bell employees truly represent the company’s values, putting people first and appreciating everyone’s contribution. Open communication and collaboration allows teams to put customers first as we work together to find proactive banking options and build long-term relationships.

In my position, I oversee and monitor asset quality in our regional loan portfolio. I also partner with lenders on structuring and analyzing new banking opportunities, including commercial and industrial and commercial real estate. I especially appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with Bell’s commercial lending team to understand what our business customers need and find appropriate banking options.

Originally from Edina, Minn., I earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Metro State University in St. Paul, Minn., before starting my banking career in 2002. Along the way, I have held a variety of roles, including in private banking, small-business lending and commercial credit.

My wife, Charise, and I live in Bloomington, Minn., and have 2 children. Outside of work, I enjoy camping, fishing, cooking, English Premier League soccer, and attending my kids’ youth sports games.
