Damon Peters

SVP/Commercial Real Estate Manager

Bell Bank has a great family atmosphere, and whether you are a client or a co-worker, everyone goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Having gone through several bank mergers in the Twin Cities, it is refreshing to be at an organization that is “not for sale”!

I lead our East Region commercial real estate lending team at Bell. I love thinking strategically and am excited to work with internal and external customers to bring ideas to life. I get the greatest fulfillment when we listen to a client and work with them to create a solution that aligns with their company and project goals.

I grew up in Curwensville, Penn., and graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania before earning my MBA from DePaul University’s Kellstadt Graduate School of Business in Chicago. I have more than 30 years of experience in banking and finance and have served in a variety of roles including as an auditor, analyst, commercial real estate banker, special assets manager, senior portfolio manager and sales manager. I started my banking career in 2005 and worked at BMO Harris and most recently Huntington Bank (formerly TCF) prior to joining the Bell team.

My wife, Anne, and I live in Richfield, Minn. Outside of work, my interests include golf, football and walking our dogs.
