President's Message

A note from Anne P. Tangen, BankFive President and CEO.

I am delighted and honored to be the 16th President of Bank Five.  I know I follow great leaders and visionaries as I take the helm.  Today we face growing uncertainty the likes of which our community has not seen.  While the effects have driven us inwards to retreat to our homes, we’ve had the opportunity to revisit all that’s important to us.  What is clear is that we are more interconnected and dependent upon one another than ever before. 

As members of this community, it’s our time and our place to support our community which we live and work in.  As an FDIC insured mutual bank with no stock holders, we’re accountable to our customers, employees, and communities. Mutual banks act as a stable influence in local markets because most of our customers, both commercial and consumer, live and do business in our community.

Since BankFive is not publicly held and has no stockholders, we can make business decisions with a long-term perspective.  Without shareholders, our success is shared with employees, our customers and our community with a clear goal of empowering and deepening our focus on a brighter financial future for all.

We’ve been here for 165 years, and we will continue to be here. At BankFive, banking isn’t just personalized—it’s personal. We’d love to learn how we can help you.  I am proud to be part of this BankFive family.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out and share your thoughts.
