Chris grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and moved to Minneapolis shortly after finishing college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. He and his wife, Chelsea, got married in 2019 and welcomed their son, Theo, in July of 2020. They also have a 2-year-old mini bernedoodle named Frankie.

Chris started working in the banking world right out of college as a financial sales rep at Royal Credit Union, before moving to Minneapolis and spending five years as a commercial real estate analyst at Dougherty Funding. Most recently, he worked as a commercial lender at Unity Bank in Edina.

“The people I’ve met at Riverland so far have been extremely helpful in making the transition into this new role seamless,” says Chris. “Everyone at Riverland seems like they enjoy going to work and enjoy each other’s company, so I’m excited to be joining a team with such a great company culture.”

Chris already tries to participate in as many chamber events around the Twin Cities as he can on his own time, so we are sure he will fit right in at Riverland and get involved in our community volunteer efforts as well!

Customers who work with Chris can expect him to provide honest, personalized service, and to walk away knowing he did everything he could to help fulfill their banking needs. We hope you’ll join us in welcoming him to the team!
