First National Bank of Northfield, the longtime cornerstone of Northfield’s banking community, announced that it has hired Lisa Franxman as vice president of business banking. Franxman brings more than 13 years of banking experience to First National.

First National Senior Vice President Pam Galle said, “We’re excited to welcome Lisa to our team. Throughout her career, she has provided value to the relationships she has handled by getting to know her customers and their particular situations well. Her knowledge of banking needs and relationship-focused approach make her a perfect fit for us and the clients we serve.”

Prior to joining the First National team, Franxman served as the president and bank manager for Anchor Bank’s Farmington, Minn., and Lakeville, Minn., locations. Franxman will work one-to-one with First National’s business customers to find solutions that will meet their needs – from loans and deposit accounts to payroll and merchant card services. Franxman will be located at the bank’s Downtown location and will serve customers in Northfield and the surrounding communities.  

Franxman said, “As a true community bank, I appreciate First National’s dedication to the highest level of customer service. I am wholly committed to relationship-banking – an approach that allows me to really get to know the customers and assist them in finding the best banking solution for their situation. I’m thrilled to join a centralized, fast-acting team and build on the solid reputation that First National has held throughout its history.”

Franxman lives in Farmington with her husband, Norbert, and their three children. She is a dedicated member of the Farmington Lions Club and the Dakota County Chamber of Commerce, and is an avid volunteer in her church’s youth group program.

First National Bank of Northfield was founded in 1872 and has been locally owned ever since. Internationally recognized as the bank that defeated Jesse James, First National has been inextricably tied to Northfield throughout its history. The bank provides a full range of banking products and services to individual and business customers in the greater Northfield area.
