Chris Theis

VP/Private Banking Team Lead

My specialty area at Bell Bank is in working with our higher net worth and higher income earning clients. My experience in this niche helps me customize unique financial solutions for you.

In working with clients, I like to make every interaction memorable and build deeper relationships. It’s a compliment when clients start calling me first, for whatever they need financially. I really do enjoy requests that make me think outside the box to come with a solution that gives the client what they need.

I’ve been in the banking and financial field since 2002. Prior to joining Bell, I worked at U.S. Bank (where I twice received the Pinnacle Award) and Republic Bank in Duluth.

Originally from Bloomington, Minn., I earned my degree in finance from the University of Minnesota – Duluth.

My wife, Lindsay, and I live in Duluth and have 2 daughters. Outside of work, I enjoy golfing and running in summer and coaching hockey in winter – and spending time with family and friends in all seasons.
