About Jon

Even before Jon Aarsvold joined our company in 2009, he considered it his top workplace destination – and since then, Jon’s appreciation of Bell Bank’s culture has only deepened. 

Jon’s 30-plus years of banking experience have included positions in bank examination, credit review and credit approval. Most recently, in his role as Bell’s chief credit officer, he has overseen credit risk management activities including credit policy, approval, underwriting, documentation, administration and collections – focusing on maintaining Bell’s strong asset quality profile while allowing for a broad range of lending solutions for our business and retail customers.

A native of Blanchard, N.D., and a graduate of the University of North Dakota, Jon lives in Fargo, N.D., with his wife, Michelle. They have five children.
