Perry Rassler

SVP/Commercial Banking Team Lead

What I enjoy most about working at Bell is the culture and people. Having people around you who share the same vision and mission of taking care of our customers is an experience that is hard to replicate! Not only are the people at Bell true professionals, but the friendships that develop over the years are unparalleled.

As a commercial banking team lead, I don’t specifically focus on one type of customer. Typical customers are closely held businesses based in the Midwest, but no 2 customers are alike. They all have unique niche products or services that set them apart from their peers. At Bell, we adapt our credit and deposit services to what each business needs, so they can operate efficiently and meet their growth objectives. I believe the speed of delivery and the ability to craft unique solutions for each of our customers are what sets us apart.

After growing up on a farm near Grove City, Minn., my first finance job out of high school was related to my duties in the U.S. Navy on board the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. My military duties included reconciling general ledger accounts and tracking inventory. I earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a Master of Business Administration from St. Cloud State University. After spending 8 years working in various accounting roles, I started my banking career in 2007 as a business banker.

My wife, Carly, and I live in Maple Grove, Minn., and have 3 children. When I’m not in the office, I love spending time traveling with my family. We try to get a couple trips in each year to places we have not previously visited. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and golfing.
