First National Bank of Muscatine has announced that Mary Lorentzen, vice president/loan operations manager, has been named the 2017 Outstanding Employee of the Year.
In January of 2017, she was the recipient of the bank’s Above and Beyond Award for her willingness to help a coworker and update procedures to ensure bank operations run smoothly. Lorentzen has been the recipient of that award five times.
She began her career at First National Bank as a teller at the main bank in August of 1979, but has spent the majority of her career serving her clients and coworkers in the loan operations department, which she has managed since 1996.
“Mary is truly one of the most respected and valued members of our (First National Bank) team due to her intelligence, work ethic, and overall commitment to our bank and our customers. She easily could be named the outstanding employee in any given year,” said Scott Ingstad, bank president. “It is a pleasure to congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition.”
The bank's main office is at 300 E. 2nd St., Muscatine.
