Since spring of 2019, the greater Mankato area has watched the new Pioneer Bank building grow from the ground up at the busy intersection of Victory Drive and Adams Street.
“One unique feature of the new building is how we will receive our customers inside the building. While we do have one conventional, stand-up teller window in the lobby and a traditional drive-up lane, our customers will be able to meet their banking needs in a variety of ways while at the bank. Otherwise, several personal bankers will transact business from the comfort of a private desk and seated area.” explains David Krause, CEO.
Along with all the other traditional banking services, Kevin Sanger, a Securian financial advisor has relocated his office from our North Mankato branch to the new building and the banks centralized loan documentation center, credit analysts, IT team and several administration positions, including the CEO, are located in the new building. With this addition, Pioneer Bank now has nine locations with 130 employees.
Construction began in the spring of 2019, and Krause says the design had the community in mind. “A main feature of the facility is a large meeting room and outdoor deck on the second floor designed to host staff training, customer education and community organization events.”
The bank is especially proud to have used local business to get this job done. “We are proud to have Robert W. Carlstrom Co. as our construction manager, ISG as our architect and several other local sub-contractors including Blue Star Power Systems, Kato Roofing, Nielson Blacktopping & Concrete, Guaranteed Electric, St. Peter Glass, Rehnelt Excavating, Mechanical Resources, Kendall Doors and Hardware, M&M Signs, Jerry’s Tile Service, Hendley’s, Multiple Concept Interiors, Greener World Solutions, Southern Minnesota Woodcraft, J&K Masonry, Braun Intertec, WW Communications and Security, iSpace, Right-Way Painting, Woodchuck USA, PresenceMaker, and Sign Pro. We are particularly proud to feature Vetter Stone on and in our building.” he says.
