First National Bank of Northfield, the longtime cornerstone of Northfield’s banking community, announced that Tom Posch, Vice President, will retire after 24 years at the bank.
“I can remember when I first started my banking career over 40 years ago doing cash flow planning on an Apple II computer,” Tom said. “Financial products have expanded so much – we now have credit and debit cards, online banking, remote deposit, cash management services and so much more available.”
Tom appreciates the customers and his fellow employees he has worked with over the years, which will be the biggest thing he will miss about working at First National Bank.
First National Bank President Tim Viere said, “Tom’s leadership over the past 24 years has created growth and expansion in First National’s lending department and the bank as a whole. His commitment to community is what sets him apart. Tom will always be a part of First National Bank, and we wish him well in his retirement.”
Tom has been very active in the community, serving on numerous boards and service clubs. After retiring in November, Tom and his wife Connie will continue to reside in Northfield, do more traveling and spend more time with their children and grandchildren. Tom plans on spending some of his newfound free time fishing and golfing a little more!
Customers and community members are welcome to stop in to the bank (329 Division Street) and wish Tom a happy retirement anytime on November 13, 14 or 15.
