Ted is originally from Cumberland, Wis., and has been working in the financial industry since 1998. In addition to providing leadership for staff as they grow in their professional careers, he is responsible for developing and growing business in and around Albertville. “I love helping customers achieve their dreams by solving their financial challenges in unique and effective ways.” Growing up on a farm gave him an understanding of the field of agriculture and the specific financial needs of farmers and ranchers. Ted also owned his own business for several years, which has provided him with a great appreciation and understanding for what it takes to start and run a business.
Ted served in the U.S. Army from 1989-1994, finishing his military career as an infantry squad leader in the 82nd Airborne Division. He earned a bachelor’s degree in international relations from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and a master’s degree in business from American University in Washington DC.
