Two hired for Resource Bank's Kirkland branch

KIRKLAND – Resource Bank N.A. welcomes Tonda Bruch and Kerry Williams to its team for the future Kirkland branch. 

Bruch will be branch manager and Williams will join the bank as teller supervisor and a client adviser. While the planning for the new Kirkland branch continues, Bruch and Williams will focus their efforts on building relationships in the Kirkland community and surrounding areas.

As a lifelong resident of Kirkland and a Hiawatha alumna, Bruch is looking forward to speaking with people in the community about how Resource Bank is different from other banks.

“I am so excited that Kirkland is going to have a local, hometown bank," she said in a news release. "A bank that will do whatever it takes to support their customers, the village, the Hiawatha School District and the fire department is a great asset to our community.”

Bruch brings many years of banking experience in areas that include retail, lending and marketing. Most recently, she held a branch manager position for three years at another bank in the area.

Williams is a resident of Belvidere, but she has a long history with the Kirkland community, including more than 15 years of banking experience as the branch manager of Midland States Bank, formerly Alpine Bank & Trust, in its Kirkland office. Williams is excited that her new role will allow her to once again be involved with the Kirkland community.
