Richard Solberg, whose banking career spans decades, was honored as the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce's Legacy Leader Tuesday afternoon. Solberg is best known for his 40 years with Bell Bank, which has grown considerably during his tenure.
Although Carey Lohrenz wanted to be a pilot since she was little, it wasn't until she grew older that she realized female pilots were few and far between. Undaunted, she not only became a naval pilot, but the first female to fly the F-14 Tomcat, which travels over twice the speed of sound and gained widespread fame in the original "Top Gun."
The board chairman for Bell Bank will be honored as the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce's 2022 Legacy Leader at their annual celebration. Solberg's tenure at Bell Bank saw the company grow from one location in Fargo to several across North Dakota and Minnesota.
