Meet Dawn Fieldbinder

Dawn Fieldbinder

Vice President

Dawn Fieldbinder has a 30-year career in agriculture lending. She joined INB in 2018 because she noticed we were expanding our footprint, and she wanted to be part of that growth.

She says, “The bank continues to grow, while maintaining strong asset quality and a ‘community bank’ attitude, as well as a full-suite of technologically advanced banking services.”  She also likes that she was able to make a career move AND be able to continue to work in the community she loves.  She’s a life-long resident of Sidell, nine miles from our Fairmount Branch, and began working at a Sidell bank as a high school senior.  She says, “I continued working part-time while attending college.  After graduating college, I accepted a full-time position.  I have stayed close to home for many reasons, but primarily, I love serving the needs of my community and seeing familiar faces on a daily basis.  I have learned over the course of my career that my clients choose to do business with someone they feel comfortable and confident with and it is rewarding to be blessed with so many loyal customers and friends.”

Dawn notes that her career evolved from part-time teller to lending because she had an excellent mentor/boss who used every opportunity to help her. With this tutelage as her foundation, she’s kept up on the rapidly changing field of agriculture by talking to customers, attending seminars and reading agriculture publications.
