Bell is the largest independently owned bank in the upper Midwest, and one of the largest in the nation, with assets of more than $8 billion and business in 50 states – thanks to our many loyal customers, whose confidence in us has led to growth and opportunity.

When Bell Bank opened its doors in 1966 with a single location in a north Fargo shopping center, (as State Bank of Fargo) our founders couldn't have dreamed of the growth the company would have. For decades, having happy employees and happy customers has been at the heart of the organization. Our values – being a family, treating our customers well and making our community a better place – are at the core of all we do.

With this as our mission, core values of family, unequaled service and giving back are at the heart of what we do. Employees and customers alike are treated like family, and Bell is recognized as a top place to work and to do business. We're a place where people matter, and results matter. That's the Bell difference.

Bell Bank is a strong, growing, forward-looking organization with world-class employees. At Bell Bank, we have a very unusual “bottom line.” While most companies focus on efficiency and finances, Bell Bank has been different from the start. Our bottom line is simple: “Happy Employees! Happy Customers!” Our focus truly is on our greatest resource, our employees.
