ST. PAUL, MN, MARCH 31, 2008: Jim LaBreche joins Western Bank as their newest Vice President of Commercial Banking and is located at the Edina office on West 77th Street. Jim has spent many years in the banking industry with his primary focus concentrated on the west side of the Twin Cities. Most recently from BNC Bank, Jim looks forward to continue his already stellar career with Western Bank.

"I provide business solutions for business people" says LaBreche. His vast experience as a business developer has grown his wealth of knowledge and made him an innovative problem solver. LaBreche says he brings a "great network and experience with individual and small businesses" to Western Bank. He enjoys Western Bank's culture and looks forward to sharing his experience to help anyone he can.

As a board member of the NW Suburban Optimist Club and committee member of the Twin West Chamber of Commerce and Minnesota Trucking Association, LaBreche has fostered many connections. He is heavily involved with the local CPA community and the Non-Profit sector. Customer satisfaction is his number one priority and his best source of business is referrals.
