Lauren Gilbertson

Institutional Trust Officer

Hometown: Webster, SD
Education: South Dakota State University

I was a fan of First National Bank long before I joined the team in 2023.

As a resident of Sioux Falls for more than 10 years, I have long admired the Bank’s FIRST Values and commitment to serving local communities.

Prior to working at First National Wealth Management, I was with the Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce and then Farmer’s Business Network, Inc. Additionally, I developed crucial leadership skills as a member of Leadership Sioux Falls and a participant in EmBe’s Women’s Leadership Program.

Now, as an Institutional Trust Officer, I spend each day striving to build strong relationships with our clients.

Because of my background, I especially love working with nonprofits; however, I am excited to serve all organizations in need of the highest-quality institutional trust services.

I don’t have much spare time for hobbies as a mom of two busy young boys, Christoffer and Anders.

I do enjoy testing out new recipes, though — so if you have a good one I should try, please send it my way!

One important fact I will leave you with is that G not only stands for “Gilbertson” in our household. My husband, Erik, and I are proud fans of the Green Bay Packers and love cheering them on both from our couch and the stands at Lambeau Field.
