Starion Bank announces two new Chief Banking Officers as the bank continues to grow and serve new customers in North Dakota and Wisconsin.
Lee Weisbeck has been promoted from Bismarck-Mandan Market President and will now serve as Chief Banking Officer for the Bismarck, Mandan, Dunseith, Bottineau, Rolla, Oakes, and Ellendale markets. He joined Starion as a business banker in 2007, began managing the Mandan branch in 2015, and expanded to oversee all Bismarck and Mandan branches in 2018.
Weisbeck holds a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Mary and is a graduate of the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado. He serves on the boards of Sanford Health, HIT, Bismarck State College Foundation, and as a Committee Chair for Mandan Growth Fund.
Dave Rogstad was promoted from Business Banking Manager to Chief Banking Officer of the Fargo and Wisconsin markets. Rogstad will also supervise the insurance, wealth management, experience, and marketing departments. He joined Starion Bank in 2014 with experience in the banking industry since 2001. His areas of expertise in business banking include working with commercial C&I, commercial real estate, and SBA loans.
Rogstad holds bachelor’s degrees in agriculture economics and accountancy from North Dakota State University, and graduated from the Graduate School of Banking Madison. He serves on the boards of Independent Community Bankers of North Dakota, Community Works North Dakota, and the Bismarck Mandan Chamber EDC.
Weisbeck and Rogstad are assuming their new roles from Dave Hoekstra, who has transitioned into a new position within Starion Bank.
“The bank is as solid and growth oriented as we’ve ever been. Lee Weisbeck and Dave Rogstad are stellar examples of leadership and strategic excellence, and of Starion’s commitment to serving our customers and communities,” says Don Morgan, Starion Bank CEO. “I have every confidence in their vision and guidance to not only help us continue delighting our current customers, but to also attract new markets and customers for many years to come.”
