Vice President, Commercial Lending, NMLS #1296543
Neil Gagnon knows his customers’ businesses inside and out. He excels at taking the initiative to build relationships, ask the right questions, and identify trends. Neil has been with The Bank of Elk River since 2000 and specializes in equipment financing, commercial real estate, SBA 504 loans, and lines of credit.
This Green Bay Packers fan grew up in Oak Grove, MN, where his parents ran a family-owned business. The values and rich experience he gained during childhood have uniquely positioned him to understand the challenges of running a small business and the importance of having a strong financial partner.
Neil’s sense of humor often brings business owners to the table, but it’s his transparent commitment to clients’ success and creative problem-solving abilities that bring them back year after year.
“I enjoy developing relationships with business owners and learning all aspects of their operations,” says Neil. “When I fully understand their business, I am better equipped to formulate a comprehensive plan for growth.”
Neil enjoys researching new travel destinations, avoiding the bunkers at the Elk River Country Club, and spending time with his wife and three active children.
