Originally from Sheboygan Falls, Chanel has lived in Belgium for 13 years. She loves Belgium, and her favorite “hidden gem” is their newest amenity, their pickle ball courts. Chanel also enjoys hiking at Harrington Beach State Park or attending Luxembourg Fest. Recently she joined the Belgium chamber to do her part in keeping Belgium a special place. Her favorite PWSB-sponsored events in Belgium include the Belgium Summer Nights Live and the Buechler Farms Rodeo.
In 2014, Chanel joined Port Washington State Bank. She started at our Belgium office and has since worked in Port and Fredonia. Working in multiple communities has given Chanel beneficial customer experience that will be an asset to her in her new role of branch manager. During her time with the bank, Chanel led our customer service representative training program, helping those new in banking learn how to deliver best-in-class customer service. Most recently, she worked closely with Annie Noster while preparing to become Belgium’s branch manager.
Chanel is grateful for her new role as branch manager. As a manager, she looks forward to helping develop purpose, value, and goals within her Belgium team. She also takes pride in becoming a trusted resource for employees and customers.
Working for a community bank that gives back so heavily to the community is another source of pride for Chanel. In fact, Chanel’s favorite memories of working for PWSB center around participating in the community events sponsored by the bank, especially Big Brothers Big Sisters bowling events.
PWSB is also unique in that it goes to great lengths to treat employees as individuals and show them how much they are appreciated. That same personalization and care is extended to their customers as well, making the bank feel like family.
Chanel values working with neighbors in a rural community. She is especially considerate of her customers’ needs, listening intently to them and making them feel welcome. Belgium is extra special in the way that neighbors are able to connect and participate in the community. Honoring those that built the community is woven through the local culture. Moreover, whenever it matters, residents come together to help and support each other.
If you’re in the Belgium neighborhood, please stop by and meet Chanel in person. She would love to get to know you personally and assist with any of your banking needs.
