Eau Claire, WI

Mike O'Meara - Chairman

My family has owned the bank since 1991 when I started working with business, home mortgage and deposit customers in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Our community bank philosophy of being locally owned and operated has been helpful in being able to hire some of the best bankers in the region. Our trusted, expert lenders and deposit specialists along with a caring attitude from our staff is what makes me so proud of our team. The many friendships created throughout the years with families in Eau Claire, Hayward and the Twin Cities is what makes serving our communities a privilege and joy.

I have been with the bank since 1996 when I helped start the Eau Claire office as a commercial loan specialist. Now, as President, I work with all three markets to ensure that the bank stays focused on the needs of our clients while still managing a few commercial relationships. I feel fortunate that so many incredible clients have trusted the staff of PBM to manage their complex business and personal banking needs for so many years.
