February 9, 2016 - Bremer Bank is pleased to announce the addition of two credit analysts in the St. Cloud region: Nate Simmonds, who was promoted from his previous role at Bremer, and Reed Voit, who recently joined the company after working as a credit analyst at Stearns Bank. Both will support the continuously growing financial needs of clients in St. Cloud and the surrounding community.
Simmonds has nearly eight years of financial services experience, including four years as a personal banker at Bremer. He graduated from the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks.
Simmonds said he decided to pursue a career at Bremer because of his own experience as a client. “I have banked with Bremer since I was 17 and always had a positive experience,” he said. “As I got older, I also saw the impact Bremer has on the local community, and that added to my desire to work here.”
Voit joined Bremer for similar reasons. “I wanted to be a part of a company that wasn’t just out to make a profit, but that was also focused on making the community a better place to live,” he said.
Although Voit put significant thought into his decision to work at Bremer, his career choice came naturally. “I’m from a family of bankers with more than 80 years of combined banking experience, my grandfather and father included,” he said. Voit started his own career in banking in 2012 after graduating from St. Cloud State University with a Bachelor of Financial Science and Business degree.
“Nate and Reed are highly motivated professionals who are passionate about providing exceptional service and are committed to excellence,” said Tom Rickers, St. Cloud Region CEO. “Both of them also have hands-on banking experience and in-depth financial knowledge, which are essential traits in their new roles. We are fortunate they chose Bremer to further their banking careers and couldn’t be happier to have them on our team.”
Simmonds and Voit office at the St. Cloud Bremer branch located at 1100 West St. Germain Street.
