Bob Rosemore

Wahpeton, N.D.

Bob Rosemore had been with his former bank for close to 40 years. Just the thought of switching made him nervous. But after visiting with Wahpeton branch president Rick Steckler, Bob knew he wanted to bank at Bell.

“It’s a comfort zone being someplace for so long. I was very nervous about moving, but it’s the best thing I ever did.”

How I chose Bell:

Bob Rosemore of Wahpeton, N.D.What intrigued me the most were the investment bankers who worked there. A lot of people like to invest with Brad Bakken. And I know Rick Steckler (Bell’s Wahpeton branch president) from way back.

I really like Bell. To me, it’s the way banking used to be before it became commercialized. I feel more like a person than a number.

How long I’ve been a customer:

2-1/2 years

My favorite banker:

Kelly Hubrig (ag commercial lender and wealth advisor) does most of my investing. He’s very easy to talk to. He’s very helpful in explaining things. I feel more educated about investments than I ever was. Without an advisor, I wouldn’t know what to do.


Personal banking officer Danica Sinner did all the work for me when I switched over – everything that was automatic payments, she just did it for me.

Bob Rosemore of Wahpeton, N.D.What it means to work with a local/community bank:

My previous bank, I felt, was so corporate. Bell feels so personal.

My Bell products and services:

Personal checking, personal savings, loans, investments*

What I tell others about Bell:

If you’ve ever thought about switching banks, I highly suggest Bell. In 2½ years with the bank, I can’t think of anything that’s gone wrong for me.
