Additional Culture Details

Bridgewater Bank (NASDAQ: BWB) has a great entrepreneurial story to tell.

It all started with a vision in 2005. That vision was to create a full-service, entrepreneurial bank where answers came quickly, opportunities were plentiful, and the culture was positive and optimistic. It would be an unconventional bank where clients would notice a difference and people would be challenged to grow both professionally and personally.
Our founder and CEO, Jerry Baack, envisioned a bank bank where team members would be appreciated for sharing their stills and be rewarded for a job well done. He hoped to create a space where people were passionate about making his vision a reality.

Fifteen years later, this vision and unconventional model has led to continuous growth and profitability. Bridgewater Bank has: become a top-performing bank nationwide, attracted investments from top institutional firms from coast to coast, become the first Minnesota bank to complete a successful IPO in over 25 years, created an award-winning culture and earned a reputation as a bank that understands clients’ unique needs. Out of the 400+ banks in Minnesota today, Bridgewater sits among the top ten by asset size.

We are the fast-growing bank in Minnesota history and we owe that to our people. But to each of us, this is more than a high-performing bank – this is our community. At the end of the day, we also know how to have fun and celebrate our success. We play nerf wars, holiday parties turn into competitive costume contests and we have a volleyball team at Lord Fletcher's in the summer, just to name a few. We are a young team (average age is 32) of nimble banking professionals who want to redefine what it means to work in this industry. As our entrepreneurial story continues, we will never lose sight of what makes this place extraordinary – a steadfast commitment to our people.

We are also building a new Corporate Center in St. Louis Park. This state-of-the-art building will showcase our unique take on banking, and most importantly, will communicate who Bridgewater Bank is from an employment branding perspective. Our unconventional culture will be the focus.
