First National Bank of Northfield, the longtime cornerstone of Northfield’s banking community, announced that it has hired Taylor Ebneter as assistant vice president of technology and operations officer. Ebneter brings more than 10 years of banking experience to First National.

First National President Tim Viere said, “Taylor is an outstanding addition to the First National team. She represents the bank’s ongoing commitment to providing a community banking experience that is rich with the everyday technology conveniences customers have come to expect from their financial institutions. We’re delighted to have a person of her caliber join us.”

Prior to joining First National, Ebneter served in the technology department at Voyager Bank in Eden Prairie, Minn., spearheading key technology initiatives, managing the network, and configuring and installing the network infrastructure and software.

At First National, Ebneter works alongside longtime employee Becky Faust, the bank’s vice president of security, to implement key technologies to ensure that customers’ online banking experiences complement First National’s in-bank offerings. Ebneter is located at First National’s Downtown bank, but will spend a considerable amount of time working with staff at all three of the bank’s locations.
