Wadena State Bank hires Erik Osberg

Wadena State Bank announced the hiring of a new branch manager for the Deer Creek location.

Erik Osberg joined the Wadena State Bank team Aug. 30, and is now working at the Deer Creek branch. Osberg had been working as a financial advisor in Wadena for the past five years and is excited to be moving in this new direction. While Osberg enjoys the technical aspect of the financial services industry, his passion is helping people accomplish their financial goals, he said.

Erik grew up in Upsala, Minn., which is similar in size to Deer Creek. He and his wife Jena currently live in Wadena with their three children, Anna (6), Leah (3) and William (1). Osberg is very involved in the community -- he is the president of the Wadena Area Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Wadena Lions Club, and helped organize the Trees For Wadena organization.

An open house is scheduled at the Deer Creek Branch from 1-3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24. The public is encouraged to stop in and visit with Osberg. Refreshments will be served.
