Shannon Hillesheim took the helm at Bank Midwest’s New Ulm location in 2015. Under her leadership, the location has posted year-over-year asset growth of 31.2 percent. Commercial and agricultural loan portfolios have grown significantly under her watch, as have Bank Midwest’s insurance agency and wealth management businesses. In 2016, she oversaw the bank’s move to a new, larger facility, a $4.6 million project that opened the following year.
Outside of her work at Bank Midwest, Hillesheim has served on the Public Utilities Commission and on the boards of the New Ulm Area Foundation and New Ulm Area Catholic Schools.
