Committed to Community
Premier Bank is a local, community bank, with global reach. We hire, serve, and give back to individuals and organizations in our local communities. We build community partnerships with vision, values, a can-do attitude, and unyielding faith. By working together, Premier Bankers build bright financial futures, strengthen communities, and have a little fun along the way!
Premier People reflect the values of Honesty, Integrity, and Responsiveness. Serving clients, families, and community is a privilege. While building communities, Premier promotes volunteerism, a diverse work force, environmental initiatives, and giving. Sharing time, treasure, and talent, is built into the fabric of the Premier culture.
Over the years, our Chairman has led by example and been honored as a recipient of the following awards:

Keeping with tradition, the Premier team has been honored by the University of St. Thomas with the Family Business of the Year Award and the Minnesota Business Ethics Award. In addition, Premier employees hold over 50 leadership roles in local and international non-profit, community service, and faith-based organizations.
Premier staff can be found in schools, athletics, the arts, churches, veteran support, business development, industry groups, water and environmental projects, job training, housing, and health initiatives as well as in international work serving the needs of kids and communities lacking social, economic, and political infrastructure.
Community bankers are not only the lifeblood of our economic communities, but they also know who gets things done. Banking is a relationship business, and as such, with great people on great initiatives, Premier is able to collaborate on and fund working solutions to tough local problems.
Bank-wide initiatives at Premier Bank contribute to the well-being of individuals in our communities and around the world through partner organizations.
