What does it mean to bank local? Sometimes, it’s stopping in at your downtown branch, where you’re greeted by name with a smile. Other times, it’s managing your accounts from your couch. With digital banking services from Lake Region Bank, you can bank local, wherever you are.

We Know You, You Know Us

Not only are we a multigenerational, family-owned bank, many of our customers have been with us for generations. Our customers trust us, and we treat our customers like family. If your family banks with us, it is likely you’ve crossed paths with our executive chairman Paul Vollan, who’s led Lake Region Bank since 1970. That level of familiarity and access to your bank’s leaders is something you can only get at your local bank.

Locally Owned Since 1915

Lake Region Bank started as a community bank on January 12, 1915, when it was incorporated as Farmers State Bank in New London by 40 shareholders. In the 1950s, Korean War vet Paul Vollan started his career in banking. In 1970, he purchased Farmers State Bank. Over the next decade, he opened the Sunburg and Willmar branches and grew the banks’ reputation as the community’s premier financial institution. When Paul partially retired, his son Clark took the reins as president of the bank. In 2003, the bank changed its name to Lake Region Bank. Today we maintain three locations and employ more than 30 of your neighbors.

Generations of Customers

As we’ve become multigenerational, so have our customers. We have many customers who have banked with us for decades. They started as young adults, then brought on their spouses, children, grandchildren, and extended family. We’re incredibly lucky to have you as part of our loyal bank family and look forward to serving you for generations to come.
