Joe grew up in Watertown, SD and later attended college in Minneapolis, MN at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management. He also went on to earn his JD and MBA from the University of South Dakota.
With 5 years of private law practice under his belt, Joe was eager for a change. “I came to work here because of the Bank’s solid reputation within the community. I also wanted a change where I could still utilize my law degree. So far, this has been a great, rewarding move.”
Joe is an active volunteer with Junior Achievement, the United Way, and several other events through Rotary Club. “All volunteering is rewarding, but I really enjoy teaching JA to high school students. It’s important for kids to be more financially literate.”
His hobbies outside of work include golf, reading, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and cheering on the Minnesota Golden Gophers!
