2020 is off to a great start here at Choice, bringing some exciting new changes to our leadership team in Minnesota.
Mike Zenk, former Minnesota Market President, has moved into a new but familiar role with Choice Bank. Mike will focus his attention back to his passion for building present customer banking relationships and also his outreach in the Twin Cities business community.
With over 40 years of experience in Twin Cities business banking, 17 of those spent as CEO of previously acquired Venture Bank, Mike’s knowledge and expertise in community banking has positioned him as a pioneer within the Twin Cities market. Mike will also continue to stay actively involved in the management of Choice Bank, serving on the Executive Credit Committee and as a member of the Board of Directors.
“I’m eager to help with the growth of our organization and to help enhance the reputation of Choice as THE go-to business bank in the Twin Cities!”
With Mike’s shift in focus, former Golden Valley Location President, John Fritz, has taken over duties as the new Minnesota Market President. In his new role, John will lead the Minnesota Location Presidents in developing business growth strategies and providing them with the resources they need to help their teams be successful.
John has over 29 years of commercial banking experience under his belt and has been a part of the organization since 2006. His deep roots and expertise within the Twin Cities market will be a huge asset as he also joins both the Executive Credit Committee and the Executive Leadership Team.
“I’m both honored and excited to be able to bring my experience, ideas, and perspectives to the helm of our Minnesota team,” said John. “I’m eager to help with the growth of our organization and to help enhance the reputation of Choice as THE go-to business bank in the Twin Cities!”
