Veteran Mortgage Lender Rick Roesch has joined Merchants Bank, according to Merchants Bank’s Eau Claire Market President Mark Willer.
Roesch had most recently been a mortgage lender at Alliance Bank, which was acquired by Merchants Bank February 14.
“We are extremely pleased that Rick will continue providing home loan solutions to Chippewa Valley mortgage customers. We know that he brings a thorough understanding of the mortgage industry to Merchants,” Willer said.
In addition to his seven years as a mortgage lender at Alliance, Roesch has been active in the Chippewa Valley real estate industry since 1978. He has worked as a real estate agent, assessor and appraiser, in addition to his work as a mortgage lender.
“Merchants is appealing to me and should be appealing to customers because it offers a full range of mortgage options. That means that customers can be fitted to the type of loan that is best for them,” Roesch said. “Perhaps most appealing, given my experience in the industry, is the fact that Merchants Bank services its own loans. That makes all the difference in the world when you need someone to talk to.”
Roesch has remained active in the community. He currently serves as an Elder in his church. Most recently he served on the Board of Directors for the Foundation Board of the Realtor Association of Northwest Wisconsin.
