President/Twin Ports & Community Banking Director
I’ve been in banking and finance for more than 18 years and worked at U.S. Bank and Republic Bank in Duluth prior to joining Bell Bank. What an exciting opportunity to lead a new team in Bell’s first location in the Twin Ports region! When you come to Bell, you’ll find a welcoming atmosphere and a positive, team-oriented culture. From the top on down, Bell feels like a big family.
My specialty areas in banking have included lending for commercial and private banking clients. With that background, I have the ability to look at what individuals or businesses need, and help you determine which accounts or services will help you accomplish your goals.
I love working with our team and helping them achieve their career aspirations, finding opportunities for them to grow beyond what they may have envisioned. I’m motivated by being able to help current and prospective customers coordinate all aspects of their financial lives.
I grew up right here in Duluth and graduated with a degree in finance from the University of Minnesota – Duluth. I also graduated from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking and earned a Leadership Program certificate from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.
My wife, Beth, and I live in Duluth and have 2 sons and a daughter. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, hunting, camping, mountain biking and running.
