Brett Hale

VP/Commercial Banker

What I enjoy most about working at Bell is the company’s culture and working with a collaborative team that is always focused on customers’ best interests.

Working as business customers’ trusted financial partner, my role is to add value to a business by providing loans for working capital, acquisition financing, recapitalization, and asset purchases while also helping with treasury and deposit services. My customer base encompasses a wide range of businesses, including manufacturers, distributors, service-based industries and transportation. I enjoy helping my customers grow their businesses and working through any challenges they may experience. I also value the strong relationships we build along the way.

Originally from Wall, S.D., I earned a degree in finance from Minnesota State University – Mankato, before starting my banking career in 2002. I spent the first 12 years of my career as a mortgage lender before moving into commercial banking.

My wife, Cristin, and I live in Lakeville, Minn., and have two daughters. Outside of work, I enjoy golf, mountain biking, snowboarding, pheasant hunting and spending time with my family.
