"I'm thrilled to be back in my home territory to continue my lending career with United Prairie Bank. I look forward to connecting with many past contacts, and of course, meeting new ones to help them achieve their financial goals," commented Klinkner, a native of Winnebago, Minnesota. Upon graduating from the University of Minnesota College of Agriculture, Tim began his career in Owatonna in 1982.
Klinkner has spent that past couple of decades expanding his lending experience in the Winona and Chanhassen markets.
Chief Executive Officer, Scott D. Bradley, is pleased to bring Tim's experience and familiarity to the Owatonna market, "I'm confident Tim will hit the ground running with his knowledge of this area, and, in bringing professional expertise to clients."
Tim, and his wife Lisa, are very excited to be coming to back to Owatonna, where Tim's three grown sons, Andrew, Carter and Brandon, were born. Tim has been involved with many organizations outside of work, including the Steele County and Winona Exchange Clubs as well as numerous others. One of his most proud affiliations was with the Winona Calliope Band, which provided him the opportunities to make numerous friendships with many New Orleans musicians and to participate in Mardi Gras parades, including the first Mardi Gras following Hurricane Katrina.
Denim for Dollars Supports Meals on Wheels
(Mountain Lake) August 4, 2015
So far this year, United Prairie Bank in Mountain Lake/Windom has raised $800 through its Denim for Dollars program. Those funds raised were recently donated to the Mountain Lake Meals on Wheels Organization for 2nd Quarter to help with their fundraising efforts to help support their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes.
Denim for Dollars is a company-wide program that gives back to the communities United Prairie serves through a combination of employee and company donations. Employees have the option to pay $5 on Fridays to wear denim. Twice each year, those funds are donated, along with a company-match, to deserving causes across the United Prairie footprint.
