Eric Nesvig is the Assistant Vice President of Lending at Minnesota Lakes Bank in Mound. He works with consumer and business customers to achieve their financial goals. “I like working with customers on a day-to-day basis. You never know what’s going to pop up during the day. Every day is different, and that’s what keeps me on my toes,” says Eric.

Eric originally grew up in Gaylord, Minnesota. After graduating college at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota, he worked at Souix Falls Federal Credit Union as a teller and personal banker in the commercial loan department. Ten years later, Eric moved back to Minnesota, and in August of 2012 Tom Screeden hired him as a Loan Officer at Minnesota Lakes Bank.

For Eric, home is now in Waconia, where life centers on his wife, their child, and hockey and other sports. His family also includes a dog named Grizz, “His name is Grizz, as in grizzly bear, but he’s more of a mini grizzly. He’s a pitbull mixwith big floppy ears,” Eric explains.

Outside of working at MNLB, Eric enjoys golfing, hunting, and fishing. He prefers being outside than anywhere else.

The most challenging part of Eric’s job proves to be working with his customers through tough times. “It’s really difficult when I have to tell someone that he or she doesn’t qualify for something or that we have to foreclose on a property. Those conversations are not fun to have, but helping my customers makes it all worth it,” he says.

Recently, Eric won the CCW Cup in MNLB’s first Cornhole Tournament Championship game with his co-worker, Linda. Eric looks forward to future cornhole tournaments and says, “I wish my opponents luck for next year. Linda and I will be back to claim the cup for a second time.”
