When C.H. Klein entered banking in 1907, he began a lifetime commitment to grow a strong and stable network of community banks. Over the years, banking has been tested with recessions, a depression, wars… and, most recently, a challenging economy. All were situations that called for financial and personal strength. These strengths still guide our bank today – with responsible financial decisions that serve our customers, our employees, and the communities we serve.

Over the past years, we are proud to have received recognition for the work we have been doing in our communities. In addition to awards for ethical business practices, we have been recognized as a top workplace, and voted by readers of Twin Cities Business as best in class for Business Banking and Mortgage Lending.

In June 2018, KleinBank entered a partnership with Indiana-based Old National Bank. The merger agreement strengthens and complements Old National’s expansion in Minnesota and continues Old National’s 184-year history of community banking.

As KleinBank, a division of Old National Bank, we will continue to focus on the values that serve our customers, employees and our communities.
