The Rest of the Story
Imagine someone with a well of extensive knowledge and a keen awareness of your business needs. Jon’s first-hand experience in farming and agribusiness in the Valley means he brings a depth of perspective to help you meet your goals.
Jon’s extensive experience includes a career as a credit analyst, loan officer, branch manager and other positions with major agricultural lenders.
Nearly 20 years ago, he and his family moved back to the farm he grew up on in northwestern Minnesota. Jon has spent a lifetime working in production agriculture. He says there is one thing that is the highlight of working in the Kittson County area: it is the opportunity to serve clients who are his friends and neighbors.
In his spare time, Jon coaches youth in sports, serves as a township supervisor and finds time for home improvement projects because, after all, there’s no place like home.
