Josh Sanden, Skid Pro Attachments

Alexandria, Minn.

As co-owner of a business that prioritizes customers over profits, Josh Sanden of Skid Pro Attachments wanted a bank with the same priorities. He found it at Bell Bank.

“Customer service is critical for us. We have high expectations, and Bell has always done a really nice job with that.”

How I chose Bell:

My father-in-law is in banking, and he knows Richard Solberg (Bell’s board chairman). My wife and I were also looking to buy a house, and we got our mortgage through Bell.

How long I’ve been a customer:

Since 2006 when we moved to the area.

My favorite banker:

I normally work with Donna Ryan (personal banker). I like how prompt and customer-service focused she is. That goes for everybody. That’s one of my favorite things about Bell.

My favorite Bell Bank cookie:

Oatmeal raisin – it’s sort of healthy.

My Bell products and services:

Business accounts, personal accounts, mortgage and business loans

My wife loves online banking. I do things a little more old-fashioned with the teller at the drive-thru. It’s easier for me. It’s always a pleasant experience, and they take care of things properly.

What I tell others about Bell:

If they sign up, we both get $50. We’ve referred a handful of people to Bell. We tell them Bell is good to work with and the drive-thru is open later.

What it means to bank at a locally owned community bank:

I think you get much better customer service when you have a bank that’s vested in the community. It’s not just about financials – it’s about people and relationships.

We also appreciate Bell’s Pay It Forward program. We appreciate that the bank looks for ways to help in the community and gives employees the autonomy to decide what’s important to them.
