Cornerstone Bank welcomed Jerry Pilch to the team in Parshall in March of 2017. Pilch worked alongside Market President Debby Rasmusson leading up to her retirement last month ensuring a smooth transition for the Parshall, Plaza, and Makoti clients and team members.
Cornerstone Bank Chairman Gary Petersen says, “It’s great to have Jerry on the Cornerstone Bank leadership team. His agricultural and commercial lending experience brings even more expertise to the Cornerstone Bank team. We look forward to his continued contributions to Cornerstone Bank and our communities.”
Pilch came to North Dakota from Wyoming and has over 35 years of experience in the banking industry. Prior to Cornerstone Bank, he was a commercial lender in Sheridan, Wyoming. Pilch graduated from the University of Wyoming with a degree in Finance and is a graduate of the Pacific Coast Banking School. He recently completed a two-year School of Agricultural Lending in Bismarck presented by the Independent Community Banks of North Dakota and offered through Bismarck State College and North Dakota State University. He is also a Certified Trust Financial Advisor. He has a long history of community involvement, which has continued in the Parshall community through Parshall Promoters and his participation in both the Main Street construction and Livable Community meetings.
Pilch says, “I've enjoyed working with the staff at Cornerstone and making new friends and customers in the Parshall community. My wife and I have explored the many back roads and North Dakota landmarks in the area and continue to find great spots to spend family time.”
