May 2, 2016 - Bremer Bank is pleased to announce that Judd Graham has been appointed chief executive officer of the Fargo Region. He will assume responsibilities from Russ Erickson, who is retiring June 30 after a 35-year career at Bremer.
Graham got his start in the financial services industry in 1986 after obtaining a bachelor’s degree in finance from Minnesota State University-Moorhead. Throughout his 30-year career, he served in a variety of leadership roles at banks in eastern North Dakota, primarily in the Fargo-Moorhead and Grand Forks regions.
Prior to joining Bremer, Graham most recently was market president and business banking manager at Wells Fargo, where he worked for more than two decades. His additional roles at the company included district business and agricultural banking manager, community banking president and business relationship manager.
“We are thrilled that Judd has joined our team,” said Jeanne Crain, group president. “He grew up in the region and has a strong commitment to the local community, making him uniquely qualified to serve the banking needs of our clients in the area. Judd also has an extensive banking background and in-depth financial knowledge, so he’ll be a valuable resource for our clients.”
Outside of work, Graham contributes his time and talents to support the well-being of the community. He is currently active with the Greater Fargo-Moorhead Economic Development Corporation, Minnesota State University-Moorhead School of Business, Fargo-Moorhead Habitat for Humanity and local Chamber of Commerce.
Graham and his wife reside in Fargo. His office is located at the Bremer Bank branch at 1444 45th Street South in Fargo.
