Mike Stangl has joined Merchants Bank as a mortgage lender and commercial banker at the Bank’s La Crescent location, according to Steve Christiansen, Merchants Bank President in La Crescent and Onalaska.
“Mike’s skill set will allow him to provide people in the La Crescent market guidance and support whether they are in need of residential mortgage loans or commercial real estate loans,” Christiansen said, adding that Merchants also recently hired mortgage lender Ashley Harrison to fill the growing need for mortgage lending in the La Crescent area.
Stangl has been working in the La Crosse market as a mortgage lender since 2012. From 2001 to 2012 he was in the Marshfield, WI, market working in banking in a number of roles, including mortgage, consumer, and commercial lending.
“Being a part of the Merchants team will allow me to use my skills in a number of areas to provide the best benefit for the people I’ll serve,” Stangl said. “As a community banker, I’m especially thrilled to be working with an organization that cares about its customers and has the resources to help.”
Stangl is involved in the community, donating his time to a number of organizations, including the Mississippi Valley Conservancy, Coulee Region Humane Society, and the Hunger Task Force.
