Oak Bank, Fitchburg’s community bank since 2000, is pleased to welcome Pete Thostenson to the team as a Deposit Operations Specialist.
Thostenson brings sixteen years of experience in banking to Oak Bank. Working closely with Deposit Operations Manager, Amber Lehnherr, Thostenson will assist in several important activities, including ensuring internal deposit compliance and maintaining the bank’s deposit portfolio by analyzing and reviewing deposit accounting reports.
“We are excited to add Pete to our team,” said Amber Lehnherr, Deposit Operations Manager. “His knowledge and experience in previous deposit operations roles, as well as with ACH, will be a great asset to Oak Bank and our ability to serve our clients.”
Thostenson will support Oak Bank clients in ACH (electronic financial transactions) areas, including debit/ATM transactions, mobile banking, and wire transfers. And, if a client has a debit card dispute, receives a security alert or in the event of a fraud case, Thostenson will be right by their side.
“Scams and fraud are an unfortunate reality in the digital world we live in,” said Thostenson. “If one of our client’s needs us, they can call me directly – not a 1-800 number with a bunch of automated responses. I am here to navigate what to do with as little disruption as possible.”
Thostenson enjoys biking on Madison's many trails and volunteering at the Dane County Humane Society.
