The first River Valley Bank opened in 1967 in Rothschild, Wisconsin. The bank’s impressive commitment to business banking attracted Ron Nicklaus, the nation’s largest green bean farmer. In 1983, the Nicklaus family purchased River Valley Bank and, like a well-nurtured crop, cultivated it into one of the largest locally owned financial institutions in Wisconsin.
Today, River Valley Bank has 15 locations, offering various employment opportunities in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
