Joan Gallagher

VP/Treasury Management Officer

I act as a trusted advisor to our commercial, community and private banking clients, helping them find solutions that work efficiently and effectively with their business operations, business model and plans for future growth. Our goal is to help customers succeed in every aspect of their business.

In my role, I work to encompass all things that would help achieve that success – whether those are treasury management solutions, antifraud measures, or ways to help their assets grow.

I’m originally from Lodi, Wis., and earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin. I’ve spent 30 years in the banking field, including 25 years in treasury management. My treasury management career began with LaSalle Bank in Chicago. Since moving to Minnesota, I’ve served at Bank of the West, Wells Fargo and Bremer Bank before joining Bell Bank.

I instantly felt “at home” at Bell, thanks to feeling of teamwork and camaraderie. Our “Bell family” cares not only for each employee, but also for our customers.

My husband, Tom, and I have been married for 25 years and live in Farmington, Minn. We have 2 children, one a U of M grad and one a high school senior. Outside of work, I love running, hiking, biking, traveling (especially visiting our National Parks or going abroad), reading, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
