About River Valley Bank

You’re Never Far from River Valley.

River Valley Bank started in 1967 with one location in Rothschild, Wisconsin and now stretches from Middleton, across northcentral Wisconsin and far into Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. You’ll find innovative and full-service branches in Wausau, Rothschild, Weston, Merrill, Tomahawk, Minocqua, Eagle River, Middleton, Ironwood, Houghton, Calumet, Marquette and Iron Mountain. Over the years the bank’s impressive commitment to business banking attracted Ron Nicklaus—the nation’s largest bean farmer—and the Nicklaus family purchased River Valley Bank in 1983. Like a well-nurtured crop, they cultivated it into one of the largest locally owned financial institutions in Wisconsin.
Today’s River Valley Bank is the result of bean farmers with a vision to invest and an unwavering commitment to community. It’s also a different kind of bank…
The coffee’s hot, the popcorn’s fresh and the positive customer interactions are always genuine. Sometimes that simply means opening doors, cracking a joke or lending a helping hand. Most often, it means going wherever and whenever needed to help our customers reach their financial goals.
How do we do it?   We’re all about I.C.E. or Incredible Customer Experience. I.C.E. embodies the core values that drive us. It’s a commitment to providing a consistent, positive and memorable encounter every time a customer interacts with River Valley. According to bank president Todd Nagel, “I.C.E. is how we conduct ourselves... Our goal is to deliver a concierge approach that is unique in our industry and we promise to be accurate, accountable and accommodating in everything we do!”
