St. Louis Bank for Savings closing back in 1994 was North Shore’s gain when Brian, and several other St. Looie alums, helped form our North Shore Mortgage Division. Brian made the transition from VP of NSM to VP of Business Banking in 2001 and has been responsible for shaping that division’s financial and reputational success ever since. As a Harvard grad with a degree in economics, Brian understands the myriad of factors that can influence a business’ ability to succeed or fail. Brian lends his time and talents to a wide variety of community organizations including serving on the boards of the St. Luke's Hospital, Mars Lakeview Arena, and sitting on Duluth LISC’s Lender Advisory Committee.
In 2005, while still a student at the College of St. Scholastica, Tom became employed by North Shore as a part-time bank teller. Since then Tom not only received his degree but, after working with the bank’s North Shore Mortgage Division and completing MN Bankers' Commercial Lending School, earned a coveted spot on the bank’s business banking team. Tom serves on several community organization boards of directors as well as continues his love for baseball as the head coach for the Lakeview American Legion team.
