As one of the original team members of Bridgewater Bank, I have enjoyed a rich and diverse banking experience, as well as an exciting ride. Being part of a growing, profitable organization is an incredible opportunity. Participating in the banks rise to become one of the top 10 largest banks in the Twin Cities has been an invigorating adventure. The positive culture is invigorating and the talented people I get to partner with are incredibly motivating. Bridgewater Bank isn’t any ordinary bank. As one of the fastest growing and top performing bank in the nation, it constantly presents unparalleled opportunities for growth and development. Over the last 11 years, I have been fortunate to be involved in almost every area of the bank’s growth. Privileged to wear several hats, I have been welcome to participate in capital drives; private equity investments; shareholder communication; new branch development; new product implementation; strategic staffing; strategic planning; and internal and external branding. Participating in the bank’s most recent acquisition was a new and exciting opportunity that provided yet another occasion to showcase the bank’s talent and willingness to take on new challenges. On a daily basis, I have the privilege of working with our operations, marketing, HR, facilities and technology departments which all include a plethora of young talented energized people that make coming to work a privilege. No day is ever the same and every day brings an abundant share of rewards and challenges. Bridgewater Bank is an “unconventional” Bank. “Growth” and “dedication” are the two Bridgewater Bank core values that stand out to me. Providing “responsive” and “accurate” service are the key drivers to the bank’s unprecedented growth.
