Bell Bank is a local, independently owned bank with community-focused values and world-class vision. When Bell Bank opened its doors in 1966, our founders believed in treating all people, whether employees or customers, with respect and kindness. Having happy employees and happy customers was at the root of the organization. And it still is. Our values - being a family, treating our customers well and making our community a better place - are at the core of all we do. Today with assets of more than $9 billion, Bell is the largest independently owned bank in the region - thanks to our many loyal customers, whose confidence in us has led to our growth and success.
