A History Of Growth And Success
Since our inception, we have been and continue to be an integral part of our community, by providing so many families and businesses with a wide variety of banking and financial tools to help them make their dreams a reality.
In 1964, Robert G. Rogers, Harold H. Ferris and Carl Kraemer founded Glen Lake State Bank. The broader community embraced the bank and the high quality services provided, helping the bank to understand that its commitment to the community and its customers extended far beyond the Glen Lake area. With this success and a farther-reaching customer base, the bank changed its name in 1973 to First Minnetonka City Bank, as it is now known today.
With its new name, the bank continued to grow and serve more customers' needs. To accommodate this growth, while ensuring we consistently delivered one-on-one, personal service, we opened our Country Village location in 1981. With this branch's success, the bank expanded in 1986 to the free-standing building where it now resides.
This reputation for success and growth continued throughout the remainder of the decade, and into the 90s, when expansion became necessary again. In 1992, the Glen Lake location expanded to its current location.
As part of our ongoing commitment to being the single bank that can meet all our customers' needs, we added the services of LaSalle St. Securities, Inc., in 1996 to offer our customers financial planning, retirement planning, investment products and services, and insurance.
With this foundation of dedication to our community, and the growth and success it has enabled for us, we are excited to continue to be your community bank.
