Blackhawk Bank Announces Internal Promotions, Welcomes Gale Price

April 6, 2022, Beloit, WI - One of Blackhawk Bank’s Core Values is to keep learning and teaching, and the Bank has committed to growing talent from within. In March 2022, Blackhawk Bank announced several internal promotions. 

President & CEO of Blackhawk Bank Dave Adkins said: “Over the years, Blackhawk Bank has worked hard to develop a culture of continuous improvement, and we endeavor to create an environment that supports professional growth on an individual level.” He continues, “To that end, we are pleased to announce the promotion of several staff members in the first quarter of the year.”

In addition to the internal growth, Blackhawk Bank has also welcomed a new team member in the Janesville, Wisconsin market, with Gale Price joining the Business Banking team as Vice President Business Banking. Before joining Blackhawk Bank, Gale was with the City of Janesville for over two decades, most recently serving as the Economic and Development Director. Throughout his time at the city, Gale developed strong and long standing relationships with members of the Janesville community, becoming a well-known and recognized name.  

“We are especially pleased to welcome Gale Price as Vice President Business Banking in the Janesville, Wisconsin market.” Adkins added, “He has proven to be a dedicated team member, who is passionate about helping the Janesville community thrive, and we are thrilled to have him as a part of the Blackhawk Bank team.”

In February of this year, the Bank also presented Lorianne Robertson, AVP Senior Marketing Specialist, with the 2021 Blackhawk Bank Spirit Award.
