First National Bank of Muscatine announces Mary Lorentzen, Vice President/Loan Operations Manager, has been named the 2017 Outstanding Employee of the Year.

In January 2017, Mary was the recipient of the bank’s prestigious Above and Beyond Award for her willingness to help a coworker and update procedures to ensure bank operations run smoothly. This activity was representative of the contributions Mary has made to the bank on many previous occasions as she has been the recipient of the Above and Beyond Award five times.

Mary began her career at First National Bank as a teller at the Main Bank in August 1979, but has spent the vast majority of her career serving her clients and coworkers in the Loan Operations Department, which she has managed since 1996.

Mary is truly one of the most respected and valued members of our FNB team due to her intelligence, work ethic, and overall commitment to our bank and our customers. She easily could be named the Outstanding Employee in any given year,” stated Scott Ingstad, First National Bank President. “It is a pleasure to congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition.”

First National Bank’s Main Office is located at 300 E 2nd Street, Muscatine, Iowa. For additional information on First National Bank contact 563-263-4221 or visit
