Bremer Bank names new Duluth Market President, Jenn Ryan


Bremer Bank today announced Jenn Ryan as its new Duluth Market President. In this role, Ryan will continue to lead the growing momentum of the business community in Duluth and support the success of Bremer clients. She will also help guide future growth of Bremer’s Duluth branch, which opened to the public in 2020.

Ryan joined Bremer in 2019 with over two decades of commercial banking experience. She earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and economics from the University of Michigan-Flint and an MBA from Metropolitan State University in Minneapolis. Ryan began her banking career as a credit analyst in the Twin Cities market following several years working as a finance director in the environmental industry. In 2005, she relocated to Duluth, where she continued her commercial banking career.

“I am thrilled to take on this role as Bremer continues to invest in the Duluth region, one of Minnesota’s most iconic communities,” Ryan said.

Ryan is very active in the community, having served on the executive committees of both the Hermantown and Duluth Area Chambers of Commerce, the Local Initiative Support Corporation of Duluth and the Downtown Duluth Council. Additional commitments include participation on the Duluth Legacy Endowment Fund Committee and the Military Affairs Committee, an initiative of the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce.
