Bell Bank in Duluth has recently promoted Connor Randall to commercial lender.

A native of Eagan, Minn., Randall graduated from the University of Minnesota – Duluth, where he studied accounting and finance. Prior to joining Bell Bank as a commercial portfolio manager earlier this year, he worked at Republic Bank and Frandsen Bank & Trust.

In his role as a commercial lender, Randall develops and manages relationships with businesses in the Twin Ports market, connecting them with loans and tools they need to grow their businesses and more efficiently manage their cash flow.

Bell Bank in Duluth is operating as a loan production office/deposit production office until its full-service banking location opens in the historic Temple Opera Block building later this year.

Founded in 1966 and headquartered in Fargo, N.D., Bell Bank (Member FDIC) is one of the nation’s largest independently owned banks, with full-service banking locations in Minnesota, North Dakota and Arizona and more than $8.4 billion in assets.

Since 2008, Bell has empowered more than $17 million in charitable giving through its unique Pay It Forward program, in which every employee receives funds annually to give as they choose to individuals, families or organizations in need.
