A professional with more than 20 years of banking experience, Lori has called Union State Bank home since 1999. She spent her first six years out of college with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), after which she decided the appeal of a small, locally-owned bank better suited her career goals. As a true small business champion, Lori's years of experience have made her an expert at finding the best ways to structure debt to allow for a business's greatest chance of success. Ultimately, creating relationships, believing in people, and watching dreams come true is why she's a banker at Union State Bank.
Vice President / Commercial Lender
As a second-generation banker, becoming a banker was less of a choice and more a family calling for Kory. Both he and his brother followed in their father's footsteps, which is no surprise to Kory since “it was all we were taught growing up”. Having started at Union State Bank six years ago after spending time in a small community bank, moving back to Fargo allowed him to move closer to family and his alma mater, North Dakota State University. As an expert in commercial banking, Kory values the opportunity to create a partnership with his clients and to help them achieve their goals by providing solutions.
