Park Bank recently welcomed Val Hartjes as our newest Assistant Vice President of Community Engagement!

As a member of the Madison area community for over 30 years, Hartjes comes to us with a wealth of experience in both the business and nonprofit sectors. From serving on Boards, volunteering or being on staff – Hartjes has a passion for the nonprofit industry. Most recently, Val worked at Gilda’s Club Madison as the Director of Events & Corporate Partnerships.

Val is an inaugural member of 100+ Women Who Care – Madison and was recently unanimously voted on to their Board. She has also been an Ambassador with the Middleton Chamber of Commerce for over 8 years and was recognized as the 2020 Ambassador of the Year due to her outreach in the community during the pandemic.

Work/life balance is important to Hartjes and she enjoys spending time staying social and connected with her friends, family and community, playing golf, hiking and yoga. She also wants to continue traveling more, attending live music, art fairs, and UW Badgers sporting events.
