We are proud to announce the hiring of Dean Steinwand, a long-time banking professional from North Dakota. Mr. Steinwand joins our team as a Business Relationship Manager. Local businesses and Heritage Bank will benefit by this new addition to our already strong commercial banking team.
Steinwand will focus on building relationships with businesses in central Minnesota. “Dean has more than two decades of financial experience,” Minnesota Market President Ross Magnuson said. “His broad knowledge base and leadership skills make him a valuable resource for the bank as well as our clients.”
As a Business Relationship Manager in our unique Team of Three sales approach, Steinwand will lead the development and growth of client relationships with the support of a Portfolio Manager and Business Associate. “Our team approach allows Dean the opportunity to interact with his clients while the internal processes are being managed by professionals within the bank.” Magnuson said. “Building relationships is really key and we do that on a foundation of accuracy, efficiency and professionalism.”
Heritage Bank has $400 million in assets at 12 offices and is committed to expanding its presence in the Minnesota market. “Our objective in central Minnesota is to facilitate growth by continuing to fund new commercial loans,” Heritage Bank CEO Tom Geiger said. “We are a community partner and focus on serving mid-sized businesses.”
Steinwand has a degree from North Dakota State University. He and his wife have lived near Langdon, ND, and are excited about the opportunity to make a life in this area. They have four children and are looking forward to enjoying all that the Willmar lakes area offers this summer.
