Steve Leitch.

 Jeff Johnson, president and CEO of First National Bank of River announced the election of Steve Leitch to the board of directors.

“We are very excited to add Steve to First National’s board of directors. Steve is very well known in River Falls and Prescott, and I have always admired his passion for community service. He has been a very successful businessman for many years, and he has an impressive amount of knowledge of local business and our markets. He will be an outstanding addition to our Board,” said Johnson.

Leitch purchased Leitch Insurance Agency in River Falls from his father, Paul Leitch, in 2003. Steve acquired Croix Insurance Agency in Prescott early this year and now splits his time between the two locations.

He is currently serving as a board member for the River Falls Community Foundation and the River Falls Area Hospital, a member of the River Falls Rotary Club and is president-elect of the Independent Insurance Agents for Wisconsin, the state association of independent agencies.

“I’ve enjoyed a great relationship with First National Bank over the years and look forward to the opportunity to become more involved,” shared Leitch. “With the bank’s commitment to the communities served, I’m glad to be a more active participant.”

River Falls has been home for Steve and his wife Lori since 1987. They have four sons, Ryan, Brandon, Michael, and Evan and are new, proud grandparents of Morgan Sophia, daughter of Ryan Leitch and Andrea Boock.
